Confidential Reporting of Structural Safety. Report 979: Outdoor video screens.
Examines concerns that structural engineers are not being consulted in the erection of large-scale public screens for outdoor gatherings This report is to raise concerns about certain video screen systems being used outdoors. In one example, the screen, which is approximately 3m deep and 5m long, is made up of a number of modules and is hung from a trussed beam supported at the ends by proprietary telescopic posts. The reporter has a number of concerns about safety as such screens are being used for public displays, with large numbers of people in close proximity.
