Every paraglider setup is slightly different but employs generally the same required steps for pre-flight action. Checking everything in a methodical way before every flight can ensure that all of the correct things are attached. This video covers the fairly universal pneumonic device R1234STARVE originally created by Chris Grantham.
R-Reserve- Is it attached securely and are the pins in?
1- Helmet buckle
2- Carabiners locked and loaded
3- Harness straps, one waist plus two legs
4- Corners of the glider oriented properly
S-Stirrup and Speed System hooked up
T- Turn direction, which way to turn around after inflation
A- Air traffic density
R- Radio turned on and in communication with other people
V- Clean looking V’s on the brake lines
E- Everything Else that might be pertinent to the specific gear or flight
Originally, Chris Grantham had intended for E to stand for Even pressure on both risers for a smooth inflation, however, there is so much more to pre-flight action than that. Chris Grantham can be found here
