Aerial Edge is frequently approached for consultation on safe rigging and flying practice by theatre and dance companies, event producers, theatres and H&S managers. These courses are designed to address concerns, provide technical detail and encourage a culture of empowerment to enhance safety from all perspectives.

Learning Outcomes:

Performance At Height 101: From the very basics of ensuring safety and good practice to industry standards and golden rules, leaving room to apply them creatively and flexibly with enough knowledge.

Dynamic Forces: i.e. Physics! The rules of motion as applied to flying, swinging and all things aerial.

Backup Systems: How do you plan for the unexpected? From shows or events not running to plan or human errors in the moment – what are the agreed procedures and how do you establish and communicate them?

Rescue: You know the drill if someone is injured on the ground. How do you safely rescue someone from height?

Risk Assessment Method Statement (RAMS): Good practice relating to aerial work. How do you know if your employer is adhering to it?
