A Word About Safety

This turntable design works seamlessly with Creative Conners’ Revolver, Pivot, and Spikemark to help you spin scenery and performers with ease. As with any machine, proper safety precautions should always be observed when installing and operating this turntable and a Revolver. Turntables present unique safety hazards compared to other stage equipment. Since turntables are often installed flush to the show floor, stepping on or off a moving turntable can be dangerous and a common source of falls. The safest way to avoid falls is to step on or off the turntable only when it is stopped. Stepping on or off a turntable while it is moving is very risky and represents a serious potential for injury. During installation or removal, do not wear loose fitting clothing or jewelry, tie hair back and be mindful of the moving parts. Before working on the turntable be sure to press an E-Stop button, remove power to the Revolver, or disconnect the E-Stop cable from the Stagehand to ensure the machine will not move.If your set has elements that are affixed to the turntable, and elements that are affixed to the stationary portion of the stage, there is a risk of crushing people or scenery between the moving elements and the stationary elements. Make certain that performers and crew are aware of the danger and trained to avoid all pinch points.
