MSA is issuing this Inspection Notice to inform you that MSA has received a limited number of field reports in which the lifeline in a WORKMAN MINI PFL did not retract after being fully extended. MSA has not received any reports of injuries associated with this condition. However, we are requesting that you perform the inspection outlined in this notice.
Upon investigation of WORKMAN MINI PFL units, MSA determined that the fall clearance required for units exhibiting this condition may be greater than the fall clearance specified in MSA instruction manuals. As a result, we recommend that an enhanced pre-use inspection be performed as outlined in this notice. Included in this inspection recommendation are the WORKMAN MINI PFL and V-EDGE WEB 8ft/2.4m PFL. See Appendix A for a part number list.
