As Siobhan points out, tying the rope to the incorrect part of a Rock ‘n’ Roll Basket is perhaps the worst crime any rigger can make, particularly as up-riggers often find themselves in unusual (and potentially dangerous) situations.
Emphasising the need for safety in the workplace, Siobhan refers us to the adage, ‘Please Rig Super Safe,’ advice that even the most experienced rigger should constantly keep in mind.
