Purchasing, applying, maintaining, and tracking ratchet tie down assemblies (ratchet straps) in a compliant manner is a challenging task. The path taken by Portsmouth Mission Alliance took many twists and turns and is not the only path, but is offered as a workable solution for consideration by other sites. Contractors and their subcontractors should consider the path taken by PMA to provide compliant ratchet straps for project operations. Without testing, it is very difficult to ensure the integrity of the ratchet straps. Without formal selection, application, identification, inspection, use, maintenance, and removal from service criteria, it is very difficult to ensure personnel have a consistent understanding of the safe application and use of ratchet straps.
