High angle 1 & 2 really nice courses, done mine back in the day at Roodeplaat dam wall Pretoria.
HSE in my experience has in many cases become a real pain to the extend where you can hardly do your work  :dousing:
Seems water (clean water) is not a problem over there!

They sent us on an all expenses paid trip to Ontario for a week to do the "instructors course". That way we could come back and train and certify the rest of the team. We enjoyed it thoroughly. The best was we came back with $5000 in our pockets because they had to pay is overtime to do it!
We have to go back in 18 months time for recertification but that is only a 2 day refresher.
And yes, HSE, or in our case OHS is a real pain. But the cost involved when someone gets hurt on the job is huge. Rehab, loss of production and having to pay full wages while recovering adds up quick. And then we have a workforce that cannot think for themselves. Some days it feels like I run a daycare. You have to protect them from themselves . But in a way it creates opportunities for us and we get to do something exciting and get to put it on our resumes.

Interesting that you say your workforce donít think for themselves and here we have the same issues.

I have often wondered if it is related to OHS.
Ask a guy to walk through a field where big machinery operate and he look out for them.  Give him a demarcated walkway and he stops looking.
They start relying on safety regulations to protect them.

High angle rescue etc is baie cool. Ek doen HA/technical mountain rescue. Pretty awesome.

As ek mag kommentaar lewer, die "bridle" op julle stokes basket, maak die straps op dit so kort as moontlik, dit maak dit baie makliker om oor ledges ens te gaan. Maak ook die jockey se job baie makliker siende hy dan by die central point op die stretcher attachment kan uitkom asook makliker beide bo en onder die stretcher kom om dit te beheer.
 
Baie nice dat die company julle so ondersteun om die goed te doen. Ek wens ek kon betaal word daarvoor, die berg redding hier is alles volunteer spanne.

Good eyes!
Ons het geoefen met die brandweer se toerusting. Die straps was so kort as moontlik. Dit was nie ideaal nie. Jy kan sien in die foto die jockey kla oor die lang straps. Die idee was om te sien as ons hulle stokes gebruik dan kan ons multiple patients hanteer sonder om te transfer tussen baskets of stretchers

Mike Rowe's pet peeve. OHS has replaced common sense.

Damn nice chops! :thumleft:

Finally!!  There will be one store in my town that can sell legally. The provincial gov will regulate it the same as cigarettes and put a lot of tax on it. If I choose to buy, I have to go straight home. So I can't be driving around town doing banking or groceries with the weed in my truck. The weed store is supposed to ne my last stop. There is some weird laws and municipal by-laws that one would need to be aware of before you light up. Interesting times ahead.

Indeed. We have been extremely fortunate. I sometimes think it's too good to be true. Like there has to be some kind of "catch" somewhere.

Immigrant do you ever plant some type of grazing or do you only use natural growing hay?
Do you bale that for winter?

Natural growing hay.
Yes, I have another 160 acres that I hay (my neighbor does it for me and I pay him in hay bales). I get average 300 round bales on the 160 acres. It's not prime grazing land, but meets my needs
