Check for inconsistency in arbor systems.
Check brake handles.
Check weights to ensure they are locked in arbor.
Check for fraying of ropes or irregularities in the strands.
- Before moving drapes, make sure they are free and clear of obstacles.
- Before moving anything, call out to individuals on stage, “Line set moving.”
- Check out electric line sets.
Turn on lights and visually check that all wire connections look complete.
Lights should not be close to any drapes, borders or sets, due to burning and possible ignition.
