SAFETY FIRST. SAFETY FOREMOST.
1. Your safety and the safety of your event is our number one priority at Over The Edge. That’s why we adhere to the most stringent safety protocols for every rappelling event we hold.
2. All Over The Edge event technical staff are highly trained and certified industrial ropes specialists. Additionally, OTE maintains an External Advisory Committee comprised of industry experts tasked with reviewing all aspects of our technical policies and procedures.
3. Each event site has a comprehensive Site Inspection & Safety Plan prepared by one of OTE’s senior technical staff, and if every potential risk cannot be mitigated, then the site will simply not be approved by our Director of Technical and Safety.
4. This event ties into corporate values such as trust and teamwork.
5. Bottom line: your safety comes before everything else.
