Latchways Standard Self-Retracting Lifeline recall alert

In Featured News by Wireless Estimator


MSA is advising all customers to remove from service and return to MSA for rework any Latchways Standard SRL with a part number show in Table 1 above, and a manufacturing date from 5/2020 to and including 12/2020.

MSA is issuing this User Safety Notice to inform  the industry that MSA has received field reports of a limited number of Latchways Standard Self-Retracting Lifelines (SRL) in which some internal bolts came loose.

MSA has not received any reports of injuries associated with this condition. However, we are requesting that you perform the actions outlined in this notice. Over time, the loose bolts will be identifiable by the user as extraction of the cable from the SRL housing will no longer be possible.

However, MSA’s investigation has determined that this may be preceded by a window of time in which a fall may not be arrested. Our investigation has determined that a small percentage of the part numbers in Table 1 that were manufactured between May 11 and December 3, 2020 may be affected.

The full notice and the steps for indentify potentially affected SRLs is available here.
