ABOUT THIS MODULE

“Rigging” refers to the task of attaching grip and lighting hardware to a wide variety of structures for the purpose of lighting a set, or rigging support for a camera. Lighting equipment can be rigged to walls, ceilings, dropped ceilings, beams, set walls, suspended on rope, or hung on pipe or truss. Any time equipment is rigged overhead there is a risk that the equipment could fall by accident during the process of being put up or taken down, and the risk that attachments may come loose while in use, and fall. In either case there is potential for serious injury or death if someone is struck by a falling piece of heavy rigging or lighting equipment.

In this module we are going to cover proper safety practices when rigging lighting and camera equipment.
