ESTA announces yet another ANSI standard for event safety
15 October 2021
ESTA’s Technical Standards Program announces approval and publication of yet another ANSI-approved event safety standard, developed by the Event Safety Working Group.
ANSI ES1.4-2021, Event Safety – Event Fire Safety Requirements applies to fire safety in the live event industry. This standard addresses the identification and assessment of event-specific fire risks, and the effects that fire and smoke will have to the life safety of all persons who might be affected. It includes those measures required to minimize the likelihood of a fire starting, means of escape (egress), fire safety monitoring, and the methods used to limit the development, spread, and effects of fire.
The standard can be downloaded free of charge, from the Technical Standards Program’s Published Documents page, found at this link: https://tsp.esta.org/tsp/documents/published_docs.php.
