New section PPE inspection
In 1999, Petzl created its first PPE inspection aid on CD-ROM. This year a new updated version of the CD-ROM is available, and its content is also available for use on the web at petzl.com.
Like the new CD-ROM version, this new section presents two types of content:
New general notice PPE
In the general text of the PETZL technical notices, we are now issuing you with new information regarding the lifetime of our products. We no longer refer to the "period of use" as this carries a multitude of different meanings. The product "lifetime" includes everything - from the period of storage to the period of use.
The Outdoor Games are almost over.
It was really fun to discover the 7 team's movies, and each one made a very great job ! We are very happy with our film and I really wanted to congratulate our editing crew, managed by Guillaume Broust, for his professionalism and talent. A huge thanks to Denis, Chris, Seb and Guillaume.
The crazy week
The action stage is over, and the whole crew had a super-great-time in such a magic place...
We definitely had a crazy week, running everywhere, connecting one things after another... And it was the same for the editing crew that didn't sleep so much during the last 3 days, but they did a very professional job.
Between us, the atmosphere was really friendly, relax but efficient. Those Outdoor Games were a very strong human adventure, meeting new people, sharing time and passions all together.
After an epic story to get a new visa at the last minute we finally managed to reach India. This country is beautifull, full of colors, rich of magic landscapes and history. Indian people are very lifefull, always smiling, always nice, it's incredible.
Evrard, Vaibhav (our local guide and friend) and I went thru Hampi where we met the rest of the crew : Mike, Axel and Ju Nadiras. All of us are so lucky to be here !
I was looking since a long time to came here, inspired by the pictures I've seen before. But the reality is far better that I excpected it would be.
