HazOp the First

Yesterday we continued the monumental task of setting up the gondola frame and organizing all of our equipment. We went through the basics in the morning, putting on the legs, floors, pyramids, and preparing the inner frame. Our safety officer, Luke, watched and familiarized himself with the gondola and how we work. Then, in the afternoon, we conducted our very first hazardous operation: attaching the inner frame.

All in all, it went very well. Our climbers used harnesses to stand on the outer frame, but they were inconvenient and didn’t seem to make things any safer (possibly even less safe). Luke agreed and in the future we are free to climb up on the outer frame, as long as we have a spotter.
