Personal protective equipment manufacturer MSA has issued a STOP USE NOTICE for certain welding harnesses.
MSA determined that the leg strap and chest strap used in select MSA Gravity Welder Harnesses are incompatible. In the event of a fall, the shoulder straps may extend and affect the protection offered by the harness.
MSA is advising customers to immediately stop the use of affected MSA Gravity Welder Harnesses produced from July 2015 through and including January 2018. The harnesses are to be removed from service, marked “UNUSABLE” and destroyed.
If you are currently using MSA brand safety harnesses, be sure to read their safety notice to determine whether your harness is among those affected by this warning.
Safety should be your number 1 priority! An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
