Communications infrastructure association NATE is calling attention to a “mandatory stop use” warning for certain models of Honeywell tower climbing harness.
“NATE Member Gravitec Systems Inc. just shared a Stop Use Alert on the Miller/Honeywell Harness 850KQC/S/MBK,” the association wrote in an email to members last week. “All companies are encouraged to check their inventory.”
Honeywell Personal Protective Equipment reported that its Harness 850KQC/S/MBK failed an arc flash test. “This test failure also impacts the use of other 850K models, as well as models in the 650K, 060076, 080007 product lines. While there have been no reported incidents due to this nonconformity, continued use of the product for arc flash protection could result in serious injury or death.”
So Honeywell issued an “immediate stop use” of the Honeywell Miller Heavy Duty Harness 650K, 850K, 060076, and 080007 Kevlar series “only when used for arc flash protection.”
