ESTA - New Draft Chain Hoist Standard in Public Review

posted on 10:27 AM, March 9, 2010
BSR E1.6-3--201x, Selection and Use of Chain Hoists in the Entertainment Industry, is available for public review here through 3 May 2010. The review is over when the posted "Review End Date" of May 4 is reached.

The draft standard is part of the BSR E1.6 powered theatrical rigging system project. This part, BSR E1.6-3, establishes minimum safety requirements for the selection and use of serially manufactured electric link chain hoists having capacity of two tons or less in the entertainment industry. This standard does not address the design or maintenance of these hoists. The standard is intended to provide for the protection of life, limb, and property.
