Kim explains, "This standard is part of the larger E1.6 powered
hoisting systems project. This particular part is for the design,
manufacture, installation, inspection, and maintenance of powered hoist
systems in theatrical venues, but specifically excluding chain hoists
and systems for flying people."
Kim is pleased to have been part of the group that saw the task,
which began decades ago as a project under USITT, to completion.
PLASA is an international trade association whose members can be
found across the event, entertainment and installation industries.
PLASA’s TSP develops standards and recommended practices that
facilitate the use of new and existing equipment, improve
