Rope Safety

Rope under tension is a safety hazard, as it could recoil with considerable, even lethal force should it break or be severed unexpectedly.  Rigby does not manage your site and cannot assess its risk.  The user assumes the risk and liability for the use of rope at all times.

There are inherent risks in the use of rope and cordage because such products are subject to highly variable conditions that change over time. Therefore, Design Factor selections and Working Load Limits must be calculated with consideration of exposure to risk and actual conditions of use for each application. If in doubt, consult an experienced engineer or other qualified individual regarding the design, application and selection of a rope product.

It is strongly recommended that you read and understand this guideline:

Cordage Institute Guideline CI 1401-19 • Recommended Safety Practices for Use of Fiber Rope
