Last week, we conducted briefings for over 100 companies in Esperance and Albany WA on the forth coming Compliance and Enforcement (Chain of Responsibility) laws in Western Australia.
Whilst our briefings covered the full spectrum of the requirements, to meet the law, the news focused on the use of Rope.
It most certainly created an uproar on Social Media in WA.
To clarify rope can be used, but it must be load rated. However then the question is posed is the person that tied to load using rope, competent to tie knots? How do you know if the rope is load rated, this is particularly the case where the rope is covered in red dust etc.
The ABC Country hour ran a long segment on the use of Rope, with people attending the briefing such as Main Roads and Western Australian Road Transport (WARTA).
