Health & Safety

Would all visiting companies ensure that their employees or contractors work with in the Health and Safety at Work Act.


The Pavilion Theatre, Rhyl is striving to meet the requirements of The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998. Would all visiting companies ensure that they have in their possession the correct documentation for any lifting equipment that is being brought in. Lifting equipment not having the correct documentation, SWL marked and test certificates will not be permitted to be used on the premises. We (The Venue) will not be responsible for any consequences that may result, be it financial or otherwise, for failure to comply.

Portable Appliance Testing

Would all visiting companies ensure that all electrical equipment to be brought into the Pavilion Theatre Rhyl has been tested within the last twelve months, and ensure the equipment is marked and records are carried for inspection. Electrical equipment deemed to be in an unsafe condition by our technical staff will not be permitted to be used on the premises. We (The Venue) will not be responsible any consequences that may result be it financial or otherwise for failure to comply.

Safe Working Practices and Regulations of the Pavilion Theatre, Rhyl.

Truck position on dock.  All trucks must be parked straight (perpendicular) to the scene dock with the rear of the truck touching the dock. This will enable crew to safely unload trucks as required by our risk assessments.

Breaks.  The in-house crew (including wardrobe personnel) are required to take dinner and tea breaks of one hour each (usually between 1-2pm and 5.30-6.30pm). Also, a standard drink break of 20min will be required both in the morning and the afternoon.

Stage Door.  The stage door here is unmanned. Your signing in sheet/insurance etc can be displayed on the notice board back stage.

Intoxication.  Any person who is considered to be intoxicated, or under the influence of drugs or alcohol, will be asked to cease work on the production immediately – and will not be permitted to return to work. It will be the responsibility of the touring production to provide suitable replacement crew. In addition the house crew are unable to provide information as to where to obtain illegal substances.

C.O.S.H.H. (Control Of Substances Hazardous to Health). No aerosol spray paints are to be used in the building, strong glues and cleaners etc. will not be permitted due to the lack of ventilation within the stage and backstage areas.

WIFI: WIFI is available here for 95% of the building (There are dead spots) Code is available from technical crew. However, please note it is restricted to 500mb per day. Any overuse will be recharged at the current in house rates.


L.O.L.E.R. (Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998).  All steels and shackles on touring flats, trusses etc. MUST be uniquely numbered and have SWL or WLL limits clearly marked. All fixings must be appropriately marked with their SWL/WLL and be fit for purpose.

P.U.W.E.R. (Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998).  All tools and equipment used MUST be well maintained and fit for purpose (e.g. motor chain bags having no tears etc.).

Fireproofing.  All sets, cloths etc MUST be fireproofed or treated to BS5852 (flame check/flambar).

Dead Hanging.  We are NOT permitted to dead hang off the grid. Any ladders or pieces of set will require motors or chain blocks.

Mirror balls.  NO mirror balls with single points of contact between the ball and the motor, and the motor and the fly bar, will be permitted to fly. Only mirror balls with an independent safety on a second point of contact, which meet the latest health and safety regulations, will be permitted.

Rake.  The stage is raked 1:35.

Safety curtain.  The safety curtain here MUST be lowered during the interval, or at a suitable break in the performance. All monitors, microphone stands, sets etc. need to be clear of the marked safety curtain line.

Mopping.  Due to HSE requirements (control of contractors) the local crew are NOT permitted to mop touring companies’ stages, dance floors etc. We are able to provide a mop and bucket for your use.


P.A.T. (Portable Appliance Testing).  All electrical equipment MUST have a current PAT test certificate/record and sticker. Any items found not to be suitable for purpose, will not be permitted for use in the theatre.

Lighting Desk.  The in-house lighting desk is located in the upper circle control room, and we are not permitted to move it.  A DMX feed is available at the rear of the stalls to facilitate patching into the in-house dimmers, to accommodate touring desks.

Safety Bonds.  All flown lighting equipment MUST have safety bonds with SWL or WLL clearly marked.

FOH Boom Positions.  The in-house FOH boom positions currently have a low SWL/ WLL rating. Therefore, they can only be used to hang lightweight equipment up to a maximum of 40kg. If you require FOH positions, the best solution is to have two 24ft sections of vertical truss which can be rigged from the stage and connected (via scaffolding clips) to our FOH bridges.

Strobe. Strobe lighting including moving light strobes must not exceed 5 flashes per second and must not be used continuously for more than 30 seconds.

Tallescope Focusing. Touring companies can focus lights from the Tallescope bucket cage provided they have the relevant training with card or certificate to prove competency.

Advance Bar.  We do not have a front of circle advance bar; the best solution for MD cameras etc, is to position these at the sound desk, using goalposts, turtle plates or “tank-traps”. A maximum of 3 lamps will be permitted in this area.


Speakers.  Our FOH speakers, including front fill speakers, are not removable; however, touring rigs can be accommodated alongside the in-house equipment.

Sound Desks.  Your sound desk may have to be accommodated alongside the in-house desk. We will ensure that you are accommodated to the best of our ability.

P.R.S.  A PRS form will need to be filled in for any show containing music; please have your set list information available.

Set lists.  Set lists or running lists will be required for all music performances.

Radio Mics.  You are required to have a radio mic license for all frequencies used on toured equipment according to the new JFMG regulations on 31st December 2012 ( channel 69 etc.). In house frequencies are: Channel 38, 39, 40, 41. (38 is shared subject to availability). Please keep clear of these as they are used in various areas of the building.

Patching in. It is possible to patch into the house PA system at the discretion of the duty sound technician.

This list has been compiled in order to comply with current legal obligations.
