The Structural Inspection
focuses primarily on the structural integrity of the Alpine Tower or other
course design. The inspector spends the majority of the time inspecting the
nuts, bolts, poles, and cables of the structure. In addition, the inspector also
evaluates monthly inspection sheets, any history of accidents/incidents, and
inspects all climbing and safety.
A Program Review
(formerly known as a Comprehensive Safety Review) is a more intensive inspection
that focuses on programming attributes as well as the structural integrity of
the course. The review includes interviewing the Tower Coordinator, evaluating
staff training, assessing emergency action plans, evaluating facility
documentation and distribution of information, and many other important aspects
for operating a safe program. A sub-portion of this review is to perform a
structural inspection of the Tower and all related safety and climbing
equipment. To help prepare an inspector for a Program Review, ATI will send a
pre-visit questionnaire for the Tower Coordinator to complete and submit back to
the inspector prior to the visit.
The Inspection Report.
In accordance with ACCT standards, ATI provides an inspection report following a
completed inspection. This report documents information about your course
including any modifications that have been made. The main purpose of the
document is to provide the operational condition of all elements and equipment.
We also include recommendations and suggestions for future operation and repair
of the course.
