Rhiwbach BAs Checked and New BAs

Happy New Year all,

Towards the end of last year, Ed purchased and put into place the new BAs for Rhiwbach. In all there’s 20 new BAs (10 Small/Medium and 10 Medium/Large). There may be some funding left for some more larger BAs as-well.

All the BAs have been individually numbered and an updated Log Sheet put into the mine. Instructions for the BAs are also in the mine, and a copy on the NorthWalesMines website: https://nwminereports.com/rhiwbach-buoyancy-aids/ 

All the BAs in the mine were visually inspected today. Frustratingly one of the new BAs was removed as a minor manufacturing fault was spotted. In addition to the new BAs the older BAs were also visually inspected. All were fine, however some of the Medium size Crewsaver Spiral BAs should be monitored as there looks like some wear where the belt is held in place. The older BAs were re-numbered from 21 to 37 (so we have 36 BAs and one XXS, number 25, life jacket in the mine at the time of writing).

The page on the website has been updated.

During use if any BAs are found to have been damaged or faulty could they be removed from the mine. Once removed please let us know which one’s been damaged (there’s a form on the website here: https://nwminereports.com/rhiwbach-buoyancy-aids/) letting us know if it’s repairable (and if you’re going to repair it!!) or if it needs to be written off.
