Intended for those who may be new to the industry, who have recently been tasked with gear inspection at their facility, or those that are looking for foundational knowledge. Things we might cover are: “How much rust is too much rust?”, “How much fraying is allowed on a harness?”, and “Can I use a carabiner after I drop it”?

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn the basic principles of how to properly and thoroughly inspect a piece of gear.
  • Learn when to retire gear and when you may be able to continue to use it.
  • Learn where to look for resources and clarification if necessary.
