3M Fall Protection has received reports that the aluminum reinforcement plate used in the seat sling on certain DBI-SALA ExoFit™, ExoFit XP™ (inc. Arc Flash), and ExoFit NEX™ (inc. Arc Flash) harnesses can become dislodged from the webbing. In a few instances, the aluminum seat plate has separated from the harness and fallen to the ground, creating a potential dropped object hazard. There have been no reports of injuries or accidents associated with this condition. The performance of the harnesses is unaffected by this issue—they will perform properly in all respects, including as body support for a personal fall arrest system in the event of a fall, even without the added comfort offered by the seat sling.
3M坠落防护已经收到报告，某些用在DBI-SALA ExoFit™，ExoFit XP™（包括防电弧火花型）和ExoFit NEX™（包括防电弧火花型）安全带的座椅吊带上的铝合金加固板，会从织带上脱落。在少数情况下，铝合金座椅吊板会从安全带中脱离出来并落到地上，造成潜在的物体坠落危险。目前还没有收到与此状况相关联的受伤或事故的报告。安全带的性能不受此问题的影响-它们仍将在所有方面恰当的发挥作用，包括在坠落发生时作为个人坠落制动系统的身体支撑，即使座椅吊带不能提供额外的舒适性。
3M is offering a free warranty replacement of the seat sling for all DBI-SALA ExoFit™, ExoFit XP™ (inc. ArcFlash), and ExoFit NEX™ (inc. ArcFlash) harnesses with a seat sling, with a manufacture date of 17/06 (2017, June) through the end of 18/05 (2018, May) regardless of model number.
