NFPA standards and Rope work
So as fate would have it now that i have time to review standards My labtop is giving me ****.
So as to my understanding ( PER CMC.com.) The only change that will truly effect the end user, of 1983-2012 edition is the change in wording from Light use to Technical use. And some standards change regarding testing for FR harnesses? Does anyone else have any input for me?
Also while we are on the subject of 1983. Correct me if i am wrong or only partially correct, But to my understanding 1983 only dictates testing and certification standards for equipment. No where in the standard does it state a rope rescue system component must maintain a 15:1 safety ratio. Or all "beenrs" used in loads greater than 4 KN MUST be G rated, ( this is a example not saying I do)
1006- Defines the capabilities of a rope rescue team and what training standards they shall meet.
1670- defines the minimum standard for a rescuer to be qualified as a technician as well as defining what each JPR will be required for each disciplinary( Rope, CON-space, Mine, ect....)
Correct? incorrect? Partially correct?
Clear as mud?
