Hi Paul

It says "A risk assessment has demonstrated that the use of a second line would entail higher risk to persons; and Appropriate measures have been taken to ensure safety.’"

Do you have any examples of situations that would demonstrate clear justification for single rope access?

Just saw a posting about this.......

"This is an interesting time in the world of Arboriculture. With the
HSE now insistent on the use of two-rope working, industry
professionals are working hard to devise systems to maintain
compliance."

Does anybody know if this is just a development out of idealogical
principle, or has it been provoked by specific accidents or broader
accident statistics ?
