This Safety Notice is issued to inform you that MSA received a field report from an end user regarding select MSA Gravity Welder Harnesses. 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. MSA is advising all MSA Gravity Welder Harness customers to immediately stop use of affected MSA Gravity Welder Harnesses produced from July 2015 through and including January 2018. The harnesses are to be removed from service, marked "UNUSABLE" and destroyed.
