Dear Valued Customer:
As part of 3M's ongoing commitment to delivering high quality safety equipment, we are notifying our customers of the following stop use communication relating to combinations of 3M™ PELTOR™ X Series P5E Hard Hat Attached Electrically Insulated Earmuffs with various 3M™ and non-3M™head protection products. During recent internal testing related to product aging, we found a decrease in earmuff headband force over time when the P5E is used in combination with certain head protection products. In response to this new learning, 3M is updating the compatibility information related to 3M™ PELTOR™ P5E earmuffs and approved head protection products.
In ANSI S3.19-1974 standard testing, the 3M™ PELTOR™ X Series P5E Hard Hat Attached Electrically Insulated Earmuffs continue to meet requirements. There have been no reports of injuries, accidents, or complaints associated with this issue.
Please refer to the details in the advisory linked below to determine if product is affected and next steps.
