We have designed these packs to be used in a wide range of environments; we cannot possibly envision all of the ways in which they will be used. Consequently, we cannot warn you about all potential risks associated with the packs and items you choose to carry.
Before attaching any item to your pack, please consider the risk of injury to yourself if you fall on it, or bump up against it. This risk will vary depending on what the item is, where you attach it to the pack, and your environment. We suggest you ask your colleagues for help in assessing these risks, or contact the supplier of items you choose to carry.
Without limiting the generality of the above comments, we draw your attention to the following:
- If you want to store a portable radio in one of the top pockets (or any device with an antenna) please consider the hazard posed by the antenna – which can present a risk for your eyes and face.
- Ensure any sharp objects are safely and securely stored.
- Do not wear your pack in a vehicle if it interferes with the function of the seatbelt or airbag. Please consult the vehicle owner’s manual regarding how to ensure your safety when traveling in a vehicle.
- Do not allow loose straps or webbing to become entangled in machinery or moving equipment. Roll up the webbing ends, and secure with the attached hook & loop tape, to ensure that they cannot become entangled in anything. For added security you can secure any loose webbing with sticky tape.
