ESTA Event Safety Working Group Current Status of the work

Information about the lecture (in english!)
Many fatalities over the last decade involving catastrophes related to entertainment technologies and live events led to the creation of the Event Safety Alliance (ESA), whose primary goal is to promote life safety at live events. In 2014, the first edition of The Event Safety Guide (ESG) was published by the ESA. Revisions to the guide are needed, including consideration for additional aspects of certain live events. The Event Safety Alliance create a working group, under the Policies and Procedures from the Entertainment Services and Technology Association (ESTA) of the Technical Standards Program, to publish the ESG as an American National Standard, or suite of standards, as determined by a new consensus body.

Karl Ruling will give an overview about the current status of the work form the different working groups.
