This episode’s theme is rescue. While we’d all like to believe that rescue situations will never happen for us, unfortunately, mistakes or freak accidents can happen. Being properly prepared for a rescue situation is an important part of job site safety.

This week we discuss ANSI for descent devices. Topics include:
- A breakdown of the ANSI Z359.4-203 Standard.
We also make an announcement that we are pretty excited about! April is a busy month for us. We are attending two different trade shows at the end of the month.
- From April 24th-25th we will be up north with our friends in Montreal, QC attending STAC. If you find yourself in the area be sure to stop by our booth and say hi!
- At the same time, we are sending a team of Gear Experts out to Charollete, NC from April 24th – 26th to attend SEAA. If you’re in the area come by and say hi!
We’d also like to take this time 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.
