Properly inspecting your truss will ensure that it is in safe working condition each time the truss is used.
The Entertainment Services and Technology Association’s Technical Standard Program developed the ANSI Entertainment Technology Standard E1.2 which contains minimum required inspection routines and guidelines for truss inspection. This standard is available for download at www.ESTA.org.
ANSI E1.2 defines three types of truss inspections:
- Initial Inspection
- Frequent Inspection
- Periodic Inspection
Initial inspection is required when truss is acquired, whether purchased new from the manufacturer or used. Dated records shall be kept on file by the owner and maintained for the duration of the possession of the truss.
Frequent inspections are defined as visual inspections to be conducted prior to each use and immediately after any incident that may have in any way caused damage to the system or truss. Records are not required to be kept for Frequent Inspections.

As we strive to equip the local church body to grow and to be Christs’ extended hand to the community and world, we aim to do it with excellence and purpose by directing all attention to Jesus Christ. It’s important for the church to be focused on God’s word and to honor its authority over every aspect of our life and conduct. With that comes a heart of worship, a sensitivity the Holy Spirit in line with New Testament Scriptures and desire to reach the lost.
I have worked with Cedarview a few times. I actually attend the church and serve as their Technical Director, and over time – because of the age of the gear in the church – they needed to look at modernizing and replacements. In some cases, the church ran into emergency situations where gear needed to be replaced immediately. As an integration contractor, we set up a stewardship approach which allows churches to plan for natural evolution for failure and obsolescence, identifying and planning for replacement equipment before it reaches a fail point.
