SAFETY ADVISORY – MSA Green Colored V-Gard® Protective Caps
MSA is issuing this Safety Advisory to inform you that MSA has received field reports that some green colored MSA V-Gard Protective Caps are cracking. The cracking occurs at the top of the cap, and is not caused by an impact to the cap. MSA has confirmed that the cause of the cracking is limited to green colored, medium size MSA V-Gard Protective Caps and that corrections have been made to prevent recurrence.
SAFETY NOTICE – Stop Use MSA Gravity® Welder Harness
Upon investigation of the field report, MSA determined that the leg strap and chest strap used in select MSA Gravity Welder Harnesses are incompatible. Although the harness can be donned, in the event of a fall, the shoulder straps may extend and affect the protection offered by the harness.
Yoke Industrial Corporation, the manufacturer of snaphooks used on many fall protection products industry wide, including MSA’s, recently notified MSA of an issue involving the potential for missing or improperly installed rivets on Yoke snaphooks.
