I recently had a guy do some tree work at my house that required rope access.
Every day he left a number of tools hanging from branches, including axes and even a chain saw. He assured me that this is safe practice and that no wind strong enough could blow them down.
He maintained that even on telco towers workers leave their entire tool belts and equipment up there overnight so that they’re ready to work the next day.
I don’t know anything about rope access etc. But I’m just curious if this is indeed standard practice?
I’ve included a picture of the axe dangling 4 meters high, only attached to a recently cut branch.
Maybe you'll just struggle in your first few days, because it's different working with ropes, but because you are doing wielding for almost 10 years, it will be easy for you to progress in being a rope access welder. I remember, when I'm in Trentham, I trained in UbiQ Group, it was my first time trying rope access, but then when you really work hard for it and have passion, surely you'll succeed!
It's ok to use it but not OK to sell it into the market, they wouldn't be able to open a shop and sell it in the EU. The Atom is a brilliant harness, they've honed it over many years and they seem to have a good quality control system as a company. I've used these many times and I'd recommend them for comfort. I was a Petzl fan until their most recent iterations but they're great products too. CMC are a global player so I'm a bit surprised to hear they haven't got the CE approvals yet.
