3M Fall Protection issues product stop use on free standing counterweight anchor

In Daily News Briefs by Wireless Estimator

3M US has launched a global Stop Use – Field Service Action to address field reports of broken end-posts (also known a Lead Energy Absorbing Post, or LEAP) used in roof-mounted Evolution Horizontal Lifeline Systems.

These fall protection anchors provide a secure tie-off point for those working on flat roof areas, and because they are fall arrest rated for one person they are used as a single anchor point system.

There have been no reports of fall-related injuries associated with this condition.

The stop use notice is available here.
