The use of scenic machinery and equipment directly involves H&S at work responsibilities, and the relevant penal and civil liabilities. European directives help to define the area of responsibility between the involved parties: namely manufacturers, distributors, installers and end users.
BLUMANO’s unique skills will help unravel this complexity, utilising a set of resources such as, (but not limited to), assessment procedures, machinery and installation surveys.
Neglect and failure to follow the most elementary safety rules are the main causes of accidents that involve those responsible for using scenic equipment; with greater or lesser consequence.
Many different types of machinery are used alone and together in the entertainment industry, and equally numerous are the types of possible injuries connected to their use.
Each machine poses a complex and specific set of risks involving not only the performer, but also in many cases the audience. Before using high technology equipment it is recommended to carry out a deep and effective survey of all factors involved such as environment, interferences, supervision and safe working procedures.
The surveillance authority can claim failure in the application of essential requirements, incorrect application of harmonised standards or the shortcomings in them, which can create unpleasant delays during setup. In order to minimise these types of problems and risks, BLUMANO can provide qualified support and a systematic procedure by using:
- Technical file audits.
- Requirements checklists.
- Maintenance procedures and machinery safety management.
Being involved in many international projects, BLUMANO has attained international accreditation and recognition.
