RE : Shunt SAfety

Hello Down Under, In reply to your first question : For both of these points - i.e. independant movement and 2 person rescue training please refer directly to IRATA, as these methods of use are proposed in the IRATA statement and not by Petzl. In reply to your second question : Please read the IRATA safety bulletins published on their website. Particularly of interest will be an incident described in safety bulletin 'SB 17'. In this incident, the injured person was using a Petzl I'D descender in combination with a Petzl Shunt towed by a cord. It does not require a great force to tow an unloaded Petzl Shunt, irrespective of the descending device it is being used alongside. Thank you for your participation in the comments of our website. Sincerely
