“3M Fall Protection has identified a manufacturing issue within a limited number of 3M DBI-SALA Self-Rescue devices manufactured prior to December 2018. There have been no reports of injuries or accidents associated with this issue. The fall-arrest performance of the Self Rescue is not affected by this issue but it may impact the self-rescue function of the unit. The manufacturing issue can be visually inspected and is easily identified through a pre-use inspection,” 3M Fall Protection said.
“To address the situation, 3M Fall Protection is launching a global Inspection Notice. As set out in the attached Notice, the impacted model #s 3320030 and 3320031 require inspection prior to use, and users are provided several options including free inspection and/or replacement at firstname.lastname@example.org,” the company added.
