On this weeks episode of our Pro A/V podcast we’re joined by Trey Merritt, Rigging Manager for Elite Multimedia, to discuss the difficult situation out of Brazil where a stage collapsed and took the life of a DJ on stage. As we look back on this tragedy, it should serve as a reminder to anybody in this industry as a reason to go above and beyond when it comes to safety. Other topics of discussion include proper rigging techniques, what’s the right balance when it comes to weighing the entertainment and safety side of things, and how the A/V industry has completely made a 180-degree turn in this area over the last 6 years!
