Draft Guide for Luminaire Inspection Now Available for Review

Posted on Monday, August 30th, 2010

BSR E1.32 – 201x, Guide for the Inspection of Entertainment Industry Luminaires, is available for public review at the ESTA URL link (listed below) through 25 October 2010. The document is intended to provide guidance in the inspection of stage and studio luminaires used in the entertainment industry to evaluate their safety and any needed maintenance. An employer could write his own safety inspection procedures from scratch as part of his duty to provide a safe workplace, but borrowing from or adopting the final version of this document might be easier and lead to a better set of procedures.

The public review is over when the “Review End Date” shown on the website of October 26, 2010 starts. Comments should be submitted before then.

Reviewers also are requested to look for protected intellectual property in the document. ESTA does not intend to adopt any standard that requires the use of protected intellectual property, unless the use of that property is essential for technical reasons, and can be licensed and used by anyone without prejudice or preference for a reasonable fee. If any protected intellectual property is seen in the document, reviewers are asked to point it out in their comments.
