Title - Part 2 Lashing On & Off

Moving onto lashing on and lashing off, miners demonstrate how lashing should be done, by checking safety first and then going through step by step. Close ups off the methods of lashing are shown. It is first demonstrated by the senior miner, and then the younger miner follows suit.

Title - Remember the important points when lashing:-
1. Always examine equipment before using;
2. Keep off the track;
3. Make4 your lashing close to the tub;
4. Keep the lashing loose on the rope until you are ready for it to tighten.

The miners then demonstrate lashing off.

Title - Remember the important points in lashing off:-
1. Make sure the chain between tubs & lashing is slack;
2. Keep clear of the track;
3. Remove lashing carefully;
4. Coil chain neatly.
