Following a via ferrata accident on Thursday the 5th of May 2011 Petzl launched a voluntary safety alert to inspect SCORPIO via ferrata lanyards (L60 and L60CK) manufactured prior to March 2005.

Petzl’s internal investigation and analysis of manufacturing procedures by Petzl concerning the production of tear webbing energy absorbers has identified a potential manufacturing defect.

As a consequence and even though the probability of this defect recurring remains very low, Petzl has decided to take the following actions:

  • Temporary stoppage of all Petzl tear webbing lanyard production.
  • Temporary stoppage of the sale of all stock of SCORPIO and ABSORBICA tear webbing lanyards for inspection before resuming sales.
  • Issue a request for immediate self-inspection for all ABSORBICA energy absorbers, used by professional workers at height, using the special inspection procedure.

If you possess an ABSORBICA energy absorber as detailed above we ask you to:

  • Immediately stop using it
  • Inspect your energy absorber using the special inspection procedure available from the Petzl website
  • For consumers within the UK and Ireland please send inspection's results to absorbica@lyon.co.uk
  • Within the UK and Ireland please contact Lyon on 015396 25944 or 25493 or email absorbica@lyon.co.uk for further information.

 

Please note: The lanyards with energy absorber for the ASAP mobile fall arrester ASAP'SORBER (L71 20, L71 40) are not concerned by this alert. You may continue to use these products, whilst respecting the conditions of use, maintenance and inspection outlined in their respective technical notices.
