Join Aerial Edge & FST for Safety Training Workshops!
Whilst the world of rigging might seem alien and scary to some people it’s what keeps us safe every day! Rigging is an integral part of many performance-based jobs and should always be thought about by all those taking part in an event that requires it.
That’s why Aerial Edge, alongside the Federation of Scottish Theatre, has put together two safety training workshops that focus on rigging and safety when working with performances at height.
These courses, one focused for performers and the other for production team members, are designed to address concerns, provide technical detail and encourage a culture of empowerment to enhance safety from all perspectives.*
Attendees of these workshops will start by learning the industry standards when it comes to keeping people safe when performing at height. This alongside some ‘golden rules’ will help you take what you learn from these workshops and use this knowledge creatively! Not only this but you’ll learn from how to plan for when things go wrong as well as learning about what to look out for when you’re coming into a venue for the first time.
Learn from Aerial Edge’s head coach and rigger, Scott Craig, who will take you through the fundamentals of rigging and how to keep people safe when performing at height. Scott’s experience working in rope access as well as rigging with Cirque De Soleil, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Ringling Brothers and many more puts him at the forefront of rigging in Scotland.
FST Members can also take advantage of their memberships with discounts to these workshops.
*Please note that this course will not teach you to be a rigger but will give you the tools to understand if there are unsafe practices as well as keeping people safe when they are in the air. Rigging should ALWAYS be done by an accredited professional.
