SAFETY NOTICE ISSUED FOR EMERGENCY BREATHING DEVICES

Wednesday, September 11, 2019 

Lloyd's Register has advised ship operators, ship managers, ship masters, shipbuilders, agents and any other users of Dräger Saver CF type Emergency Escape Breathing Devices that a safety notice has been issued by the manufacturer.

Dräger Safety has issued a safety notice (which includes a letter and attachment) highlighting that the hood visor material on a number of its Saver CF type Emergency Escape Breathing Devices (EEBDs) will not offer the required level of protection at extreme low temperatures and, in some instances, cracking of the visor may occur.

The hoods are provided on Saver CF type EEBDs manufactured between 1 May 2018 and 2 July 2019, with serial numbers in the range from BRLE-0001 to BRMH-9999.

If Dräger Saver CF type EEBDs with the above serial numbers have recently been supplied, then owners and operators should check the serial number of the EEBD’s hood.
