Thanks for stopping by Hansen Specialities (with 3 i’s) has to do with the out of doors, and I am using my technical and engineering skills to help other professionals do work and rescue. I have made them my life pursuits, and sharing them with you makes it possible. I would like to invite you to benefit from my efforts, so please check out:
Hansen Specialities (with 3 i’s) deals with Mountaineering, Climbing, Camping, Backpacking, XC Skiing, Snowshoeing, Camping, and more: consultation, equipment, classes that help make the experience enjoyable and safe.
About the time OSHA was putting a big emphasis on Work at Height skills, Fall Protection, and Equipment, I was well established as a climber. Of course, the skills and equipment and many of the principles of climbing can be used while working at height, so I found many private businesses seeking my assistance, and even governmental organization like OSHA, BOR, BLM, NPS, USFS, and others they wanted to hire me as a consultant, a trainer, and to do speciality projects with/or for them.
We work with professionals to figure out ways to access and do jobs more efficiently and to keep the risk reasonable. These types of skills and the equipment were not directly related to the recreational end. They were just enough different
I train professionals in work at height skills, fall prevention and protection, and Technical and Wilderness Search and Rescue. Also, I have a pretty good background in natural hazard (Rock and Boulder Fall, and Snow Avalanche) evaluation and mitigation
I am looking forward to being of service to you and in your endeavors. The following is sort of an introduction. Please do feel free to contact me, you will be “glad you did!”
About us: ____________________________________
Some of you may already know me. I had a couple of great businesses in Utah County, which next to my family, friends, and neighbors, were the most important things in my life.
Despite the work to keep things going well, “I sure loved the experience.”
Things like people coming together, creating synergies, successful projects. That is an amazing reward and experience!
It started out as a love for the mountains and turned into a sharing thing. I wanted to share the experience with others, but in order for them to enjoy the experience they needed certain skills and equipment –so I started teaching and selling equipment. That was a good combination. It seems that sharing an experience with someone else often magnifies and intensifies the experience.
As time went on I found that that something was missing, sure the experience was very close a poem I read:
Climb the mountains and get their good tidings,.
Natures peace will flow into you as sunshine into the trees.
The winds will blow their own freshness into you
and the storms their energy,
while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.
But something was missing.
It took me a while to figure it out because it was something that seemed unrelated. It was something powerful, long-lasting and that had nothing to do with Mountaineering, yet it had everything to do with it.
It was a way to give back. It was a touch of the key values of life that was missing; or the good living principles. There are many “good books” full of ideas, principles, values, and other things that can make our lives better. Regardless of a person’s belief’s, I think they can find value in books. With time I decided to interject some of these into my writing, my teaching, and my everyday life.
“For me, there is only the traveling on paths that have heart, on any path that may have heart, and the only worthwhile challenge is to traverse its full length–and there I travel looking, looking breathlessly.”
What is success? I have found success is different for us all. It can be, “being” a leader in a great endeavor, or “being” part of the team that makes the great endeavor possible. Either way it is a sharing thing, we are part of the solution; which creates success and happiness.
