Hanging tools overnight

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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.

He didn’t speak with Irish accent by any chance, multi skilled type of chap, tarmac, roofing, landscape and sells Dags?
