Our safety gear and equipment are our tools to do the demanding work that we do: save lives and protect property. They are also our lifelines. The coats, pants, boots, gloves, hood, and helmet we wear protect us from the elements. Our SCBA provides the air we need to do the work and get out, and our radios connect us to the outside for information and when we need help. Why wouldn’t we know everything about them, every day? Daily safety inspections must become a ritual, not just a requirement. Read here from NearMissMatters about the importance of inspecting your lineline tools every day.
