Electrical Safety for Live Events is aimed at all who have to deal with electricity in their day-to-day professional lives, and primarily, states the author, as with any health and safety book, it should teach us when it is time to back off, and time to call someone else in. The title follows Marco van Beek's successful Practical Guide to Health & Safety in the Entertainment Industry. Sections include: Basic Electrical Concepts, Basic Electrical Safety Rules, Fault Conditions, Protection Concepts, Protective Devices. Cables and Connectors, Three-Phase, Test Equipment, Loads, Power Sources, Advanced Issues and Case Studies, plus listings of Current Legislation, Current Guidelines and Further Reading. In his foreword, Richard Salzedo of Avolites says: "Marco's book offers an excellent single reference point and it should be compulsory reading for everyone from producer to stage-hand. For if reading it makes a safer stage, then we are all better off."
