Online Safety Community

I am a member of SkillsUSA and I will be competing in Extemperaneous Speaking in Kansas City! I was curious about safety precautions that should be made for those at speaking events, so I started researching. Here are a few that I found:

1. Ensure that all electrical wires are taped to the floor and near the edge of the stage.
2. Avoid wobbly podiums
3. Glow-in-the-dark tape areound the edge of the stage
4. Dry floors are a must
5. Eleminate all litter on the floor
6. Clean drinking water must be provided
7. Railing and stairs at the stage
8. The stage can accomadate the weight of the speaker and props

I know they all seem common sense but I found it interesting to see all the thought that goes on before a speaking engagement. If you have any safety tips for stage safety, please share!

Thank you

Oh, and seating must be arranged to allow for handicapped access, egress, etc. Eisles need to be at least 42" or more, I believe. Must have emergency lighting, etc. etc. Restroom access....... Have fun I know there is so much more to consider.

Must have handrail for stairs on stage. Watch load limits on overhead portable lighting rails - they tend to put too much on them. Good luck and have fun!

Good luck Carolyn! Here are some things I thought of:
- what is your exit strategy in the event of a fire or other disaster?
- if you are speaking & a disaster happens how would you instruct the audience (location of exits
be calm, etc)
- note the location of fire extinguishers, defribrillators, and so forth

If I think of others I'll let you know, I'm typing from an iPhone & am more comfortable with longer replies from a keyboard
Again Good Luck!
