Stop use and Replace Notice for Fall Protection Device

From Guardian Fall Protection:

Angel Anchor Stop Use & Replace Notice

Guardian Fall Protection is issuing an immediate Stop Use and Replace notice for all Guardian Angel Anchors, part #00260.

The Angel Anchor may be unsafe for use on certain substrate materials, and was additionally labeled with an incorrect maximum worker weight capacity. Guardian has redesigned the Angel Anchor to resolve these issues, but all existing Angel Anchors must no longer be used.

There have been no accidents or injuries related to this condition.

Anchor Stop Use Notice for 3M LEAP Post

3M Fall Protection (formerly Capital Safety) has received field reports of broken end-posts (also known as Lead Energy Absorbing Posts, or “LEAP posts”) used in roof-mounted EvolutionTM Horizontal Lifeline Systems. 3M has launched a global Stop Use – Field Service Action to address this situation. The same Evolution end-posts are also used in Free Standing Counterweight Anchor systems. There have been no reports of fall-related injuries associated with this condition.

To address the Free Standing Counterweight Anchor situation, 3M is launching a global Stop Use – Field Service Action to retrieve and replace all end-posts used in these Anchors sold between 2005 and 2015 (at which time the Evolution end-post was discontinued and replaced with a Roof Safe end-post).
