Stage Gerbs

Points to look out for:

1. Is the user of pyrotechnics in your venue trained to use the products? Are they a member of the ASP (Association of Stage Pyrotechnicains). 

Check to see of their name is on the directory at www.stage-pyro.org.uk 

2. Have you a completed risk assessment and COSH sheet for your pyrotechnics display, to ensure that your venue and its clients are safe? If using Le Maitre products health & safety data sheets are available at www.lemaitre.co.uk - Ensure you know what products are to be used.

3. Check the following:

  • Height of projection of the Pyro - (So you will not burn your ceiling) 
  • The Sound Level Pressure of the Device (dB)
  • Hot or Cold ''fall out''
  • Distance to the nearest person - usually 2-3metres minimum

4. Make sure ALL pyrotechnics are securely stored in a UN approved cardboard box whilst not in use or are in transit.

5. Make sure that the correct firing equipment is used. (Car batteries or use of un-enclosed batteries at the firing position are not acceptable).
