Safety company MSA issued a safety recall due to a potential issue involving 50-foot (15 metre) Workman Self-Retracting Lanyards (SRLs). They determined a small percentage of these SRLs manufactured from January through August of 2015 may have an improper brake nut torque setting. This condition is not detectable when performing normal pre-use inspection procedure. SRLs with this condition may not arrest a user’s fall or may not arrest it within the specified maximum arrest distance.

There have been no reports of incidents attributed to this condition, but they ask for your immediate assistance in allowing them to replace all affected SRLs.
