From outside of the box; Paul, has anybody considered these auto-belay
devices that climbing walls use nowadays? (
https://headrushtech.com/about/technology.html)
This occurred to me while a watching a Scandi-noir drama on the TV over the
weekend, wherein someone being lowered down a well had not only their
access rope but an auto-belay attached to the back of the harness.

Apologies 'again' David.

Some details of the accidents to which the HSE refer were available on the
previous weblink to the AA website. The HSE have, apparently, prepared more
detailed information for a recent AFAG meeting and this should come to our
attention shortly when we will publish on the website.

Hi again Paul

It says ... "The HSE has consistently argued that, despite the good
practice guidance that we have been working with for the last 15 years, the
number of accidents in our sector remains unacceptably high – indeed, it
states that the arboricultural sector has the highest accident rate per
capita of all UK industries. Clearly this is something we would all wish to
change."

Can you point me to these specific accident statistics over the 15 years
mentioned please?

David

Are we just talking an auto belay? or something more complex?

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 ?

David
