In this episode of Sound Design Live I talk with the executive director of the Event Safety Alliance, Jim Digby. Digby has worked in the entertainment business for over 30 years as a live event and concert production manager for bands like Linkin Park and Backstreet Boys. We talk about the elements that are necessary to produce safe events, what you should know about labor and safety standards in the U.S., and a few surprises I discovered in the new Event Safety Guide. We also discuss employer-supported hearing conservation and answer these important questions:
Is the rate of event related deaths and injuries going up or down?
Who is the Event Safety Guide for?
Should sound engineers carry professional liability insurance?
