RIGGERS 20th Nov 14
7. TANDEM HARNESS & CONTAINER SYSTEM – INITIAL CLEARANCE REQUEST
A proposal from Malcom Knox (AR) together with supporting paperwork had been circulated with the Agenda requesting that the Relative Workshop Ex- Military Vector Wonderhog Dual Container/ Tandem Harness system (serial no. 43482) be accepted for use.
The Committee noted that the paperwork previously circulated had not identified the specific harness to be used with this particular container.
However, during inspection of the container & harness, which was presented to the meeting it was noted that the harness in use with this particular container had been manufactured by Aircare (Nicky Johnston). It was pointed out that the Aircare harness had never been accepted for use with other containers. Therefore, the Committee could only deal with the particular serial numbered container as presented.
During discussion, it was agreed by those present that any other (similarly modified ex-Military Tandem Vector equipment) would only be accepted for use on an individual basis and that anyone else wishing to obtain a similar clearance for other rigs would need to submit the appropriate paperwork to the Riggers’ Sub-Committee for consideration.
Following further consideration, it was proposed by Malcom Knox (proxy) and seconded by Pete Sizer that this specific Relative Workshop Ex-Military Tandem Vector II Wonderhog Dual Container (serial no. 43482) be accepted for use.
