Any safety concerns should be reported immediately to your supervisor. Most accidents in the workplace are preventable, and everybody shares responsibility for vigilance of unsafe work conditions and their own individual work practices. In the unfortunate event of an accident, you are required to report the incident to your supervisor.

Working in the sports and entertainment fields can expose you to many hazards if the proper techniques and steps are not followed. The safety of every worker, artist and guest depends heavily upon the proper combination of caution, technique and common sense. The following are some guidelines that will allow us to maintain the high standard of safety we expect.

Electrical Safety

  • Always meter supply before connection.
  • Always isolate the supply before connection.
  • Never replace a fuse with one of greater ampere rating.
  • Never disconnect grounds until all other cables are disconnected first.
  • Always lay excess cable in a figure eight, never in a coil.
  • Always report unattended live cable that is not capped.

Rigging Safety

  • Never stand under a moving load.
  • Always wear a harness and be clipped off when working at heights above 6 feet.
  • Never tie a knot when you are unsure of the application, check first.
  • Never stand under riggers working directly overhead.
  • Never use frayed or damaged slings. Such equipment should be reported to your supervisor.
  • Always double check your rigging procedures.
  • Always have tools secured to your harness when working at a height.
  • Never, ever pull on a rope hanging from the ceiling.

Fire Safety

  • Never block fire exits or fire equipment.
  • Always check the status of smoke detectors before using smoke machines.
  • Know the position of your nearest fire fighting equipment, and the nearest fire exit.

Sound Level Safety

  • Prolonged exposure to audio levels as high as 85 dB can cause both temporary and long term hearing problems. Hearing protection should be worn at all times by those individuals who may be required to be exposed to excessive audio levels.

Public Safety

  • Always make sure that all equipment in public areas is secured.
  • All cables crossing pathways have to be covered and clearly marked as a change in the floor level.
  • All crates should have the catches and latches closed to avoid injury.
  • Make sure all floors are free of debris and dry.

Drug Free Work Place

Unlawful possession, use, production, distribution or sale of alcohol or other drugs by any employee is prohibited on University property or as any part of University activities.

Policy Guidelines:

  • This policy was created to comply with the Drug-Free School and Communities Act Amendments of 1989 (Public Law 101-226), which requires that the University show it has adopted and implemented a program to prevent the illicit use of drugs and the abuse of alcohol by all employees, and to set forth standards to provide a community setting that is safe, healthy, and productive for all University employees, tenants and visitors.
  • Any employee violating this policy will be subject to the appropriate University disciplinary procedures.
  • Violation of this policy may also lead to referral for prosecution to the appropriate local, state, and / or federal authorities. Employees who are convicted of any criminal drug statute violation in the workplace must notify their supervisor within five days of the conviction if they are employed by the University at the time of the conviction.

It is our sincere desire to provide a safe and enjoyable work environment for all our employees. Therefore there will be zero tolerance on the use of illegal substances within our facility.

Sexual Harassment

It is the goal of the JSC to protect all employees from verbal or physical harassment. If you encounter harassment of any form, bring it to supervisor's attention immediately. All complaints of harassment or discrimination will be investigated and kept confidential except for disclosures reasonably required by our investigation. If we determine as employee has engaged in harassment or discrimination appropriate disciplinary action up to, and/or including discharge will be taken.

Our policy includes unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors and other verbal conduct of a sexual nature when it meets any of the following:

  • Submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term condition of an individual's employment or academic status.
  • Submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual is used as the basis for employment or academic decisions affecting such individual.

Such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual's work or academic performance or creating an intimidating, hostile or offensive environment for working, learning or living on campus. Sexual harassment can occur between any individual associated with the University, e.g. an employee and a supervisor; coworkers; a staff member or student and a customer, vendor or contractor; students; or a student and staff member.
