This episode’s theme is rope inspection and maintenance. Of course, rope can be used as part of your safety plan for at-height work. But in this episode, we are going to talk about proper rope care, rope inspection, and inspection practices when rope is used as part of your lifting and rigging plan.
About This Episode
In episode 13 of Gear Up with Gear Experts, our guest is Beau Aero. Beau has been with GME Supply and Columbia Safety for 15 years (but technically since birth).
We talk with Beau about:
- The 3 most common types of rope;
- The importance of knowing your rope;
- The history of rope inspection and the Cordage Institute;
- Rope inspection best practices; and
- How to properly store and care for your rope.
We’d also like to remind everyone that while this show is meant to be fun, entertaining, and informative it is not intended to replace proper, in-depth training. Manufacturer’s instructions must also be followed and reviewed before any fall protection equipment is used. And proper training should be received before operating any equipment or before climbing.
Why Do You Climb?
We’d like to hear from you about why YOU climb. Email us a voice message at firstname.lastname@example.org about why you climb and what climbing means to you for a chance to be featured on the show – and win some swag of course.
