Continuing where he left off with his highly successful "An Introduction to Rigging in the Entertainment Industry" , Chris Higgs' book covers the regulations and use of equipment in greater detail. The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER) are discussed at length and chapter 2 provides a model Code of Practice for Rigging in Venues. Rigging Theory covers everything from Factors of Safety and Terminations of Ropes and Wire Ropes to Breasts and Brails and Hotel and Ballroom Rigging. Equipment is fully described, as is the rigging process itself. The final chapter covers Working at Height, from the regulations involved and use of access machines through to example training courses. For the future, the author makes note of Soft Landing Systems. Incorporated throughout the book iscontinued reference to as much guidance material as there is available from the likes of the HSE, British Standards and the ABTT's Code of Practice for 'Flying'.
