RECOVERY PROCEDURES (CON'T.)
STEP 6. ERECT RIGGING
Orient the crew, instruct them to assemble the tackle and then
move to a safe location. Advise the crew members of the plan,
direct them to erect the tackle, and assign specific tasks. Crew
members who have finished their tasks should assist those who
are having difficulty. The crew members can save time by having
a thorough knowledge of the tackle to be erected and by helping
each other. Observe all safety precautions!
STEP 7. RECHECK RIGGING
Make sure that tackle is rigged for proper and safe operation.
Direct the operator to remove most of the slack from the lines and
to inspect for correct assembly. If any corrections must be made,
direct the crew members to make them. Explain the details of the
operations to the operators of the recovery vehicle and the other
vehicles involved. Direct operators to be prepared to watch for
and act on signals. Then move to a safe location where signals
can be observed by all vehicle operators.
