Enables workplace responders to prepare for and respond to falls from height How do you rescue someone suspended in midair or trapped above ground? Author Loui McCurley, an expert in technical rope rescue with more than twenty-five years of experience, has the answers. Following her tested and proven advice, readers will learn how to prepare for and safely rescue "at-height" workers and others from "falls from height." The book fully bridges the gap between planning and execution, steering readers toward simple workplace-specific solutions. Moreover, it explains how to develop and implement a comprehensive protection program, enabling all organizations and their employees to fully prepare themselves to respond to a fall from height. Falls from Height is divided into four parts: Part I: Regulatory Considerations, Rescue Plans, and Developing a Rescue Capability underscores the need for a rescue program, explaining how to fully leverage available resources to optimize the program. Part II: Equipment, Systems, and Skills details the skills that all rescuers should have and the equipment they need to perform a rescue at height. Part III: Putting It All Together discusses principles of rigging, single-rescuer methods, and group-rescuer methods. Part IV: Successful Workplace Planning examines the unique challenges of different workplace environments and then offers a step-by-step guide for implementing the book's recommendations. Based on the premise that a fallen worker must be rescued quickly and efficiently, without putting others in harm's way, Falls from Height is a must for all workplace responders, enabling them to prepare for and respond to fall victims like experienced rescuers.

Wenn Alex Honnold in eine Wand einsteigt, gibt es kein Zurück. Der sympathische 30-Jährige hat die puristischste Form des Kletterns, ohne Seil und Sicherung, in neue Dimensionen geführt. Nun blickt der Star der Szene auf die Highlights seiner Karriere zurück, wie die 400 und 900 Meter langen Free-Solo-Begehungen von »Moonlight Buttress« in Utah und »The Nose« im Yosemite-Nationalpark sowie die »Fitz Traverse« im Alpinstil mit Tommy Caldwell in Alaska. Er verrät, wie er den Spagat zwischen Abgrund und Privatleben schafft. Und erklärt eindrucksvoll, warum Risiko oftmals auch Gewinn bedeuten kann und wie man in Extremsituationen fokussiert bleibt.
