An Engineer Inspects the Rigging
C. Alexander Robertson


More than thirty years' experience in accident prevention, most of which has been spent in industrial operations, qualifies the author of this article to speak with authority. His work entailed rescue techniques, artificial resuscitation, first aid, the use of ropes slings, lifts, hoists, scaffolding, ladders, block and tackle, boatswains' chairs and other types of construction and rigging. In view of the ever increasing number of persons exploring wild caves, this article is a timely one to give them sound advice.
