13. 13 User Instructions - English Anchor Sling (Part SE-AS/4.0FT & SE-AS/2.5FT) The anchor sling is used to facilitate anchoring the SafEscape Device to a variety of anchorage points, such as I-beams, ladder rungs, etc. To install, wrap the anchor sling around the anchorage point and pull one end through the other end. Pull tight and connect the anchorage carabiner on the SafEscape Device to the web sling. Pulley (Part SE-P) The pulley can be used to re-direct the rescue lifeline away from the anchor point if needed. This may be necessary to avoid sharp edges or obstacles in the descent path. To attach pulley to lifeline, follow the steps below. Step 1 - Rotate one half of the pulley to allow insertion of the lifeline. Once lifeline is inserted, return pulley to aligned position. Step 2 - Attach locking carabiner to pulley. Ensure that the carabiner is completed closed and locked.

Periodically clean the device and lifeline with water and a mild detergent. The device should be positioned so that all excess water drains out. The lifeline must be allowed to naturally air dry. Do not force dry with heat sources. The unit should be stored in a dry, cool and clean environment and protected against UV irradiation. Storage areas should be free of exposure to fumes, acids, corrosive elements, oils and heat sources. Servicing Servicing must only be carried out by Miller Fall Protection or a service center authorized, in writing, by the manu- facturer. A record log of all servicing and inspection dates for this system must be maintained. Only original Miller Fall Protection replacement parts are approved for use in this system. Non-repairable devices must be disposed RILQDPDQQHUWRSUHYHQWLQDGYHUWHQWIXUWKHUXVH&RQWDFW0LO OHU7HFKQLFDO6HUYLFHVDWLI\RXKDYH any questions. Inspection Steps 1. Inspect for misaligned, bent, cracked, distorted, worn, malfunctioning or damaged parts; loose fasteners or missing parts/components; deterioration; corrosion; or any other indications of damage/problems that may affect the integrity and operation of the product. Also inspect any accessory components and parts (i.e., rescue rope grab, rope anchor, etc.) for the same. 2. Inspect the entire length of rope lifeline (as well as the rope anchor, if applicable) for cuts, burns, severely abraded areas, and excessive wear. The lifeline must freely pull through the device in both directions. 3. Inspect carabiners for damage, distortion, corrosion, or pitted surfaces. The carabiner gate should seat into the nose without binding and should not be distorted or obstructed. The gate locking mechanism must prevent the gate from opening when closed. 4. Inspect all other system components (i.e, harness, rescue lanyard, anchorage connector, etc.) according to the manufacturer's instructions. If inspection reveals a defect in condition or operation, or if the device has been used in an emergency rescue situation, it must be removed from service immediately!

Be sure to refer to the tables in 2.2 System Warnings and Limitations to determine the descent and hoisting limita- tions, as well as the maximum number of consecutive descents and lifts.

8. User Instructions - English 8 4.2 Use Single Person Descent 1. Connect the carabiner on the lifeline end to the front or back D-ring of the full-body harness. [Be sure to read, understand and follow all instructions and warnings provided with the full-body harness at the time of shipment.] 2. Prior to descent, remove any slack in the lifeline that may exist between the user and the device. Once the lifeline is taut, maintain a secure hold on the free end of the lifeline (see Fig. 4). 3. To begin descent, release the free end of the lifeline. Descent speed is automatically controlled via the SafEscape's centrifugal brake. NOTE: Descent may be controlled by a person located at the base of the de- scent or by the descender (see Controlling Descent). CAUTION: To avoid injury, always bend your knees in preparation for safe landing. 4. After landing, disconnect the lifeline carabiner from the user's full-body harness. Once the SafEscape Device has been properly installed, prepare the lifeline for use by lowering one end of the lifeline to the ground or landing surface. Ensure that the lifeline is free of knots or kinks. IMPORTANT: A full-body harness must be used with the SafEscape Rescue/Descent Device. Controlling Descent Descent may be controlled by a person located at the base of the descent (where the SafEscape Device is installed) OR by the descender so long as the free lifeline end has not already passed above the descender. To slow or interrupt descent: Firmly grasp the free end of the lifeline (see Fig. 3a). For increased lever- age, pass the free end of the lifeline end through the pigtail (see Fig. 3b). To suspend descent and free hands for rescue: Firmly grasp the free end of the lifeline, pass it through the pigtail, and then secure in the cam cleats (see Fig. 3c). This procedure locks the lifeline in place to prevent unintentional descent, while freeing the rescuer hands. Fig. 3a Fig. 3b Fig. 3c Fig. 4

10. User Instructions - English 10 Simultaneous Rescue/Descent In some circumstances, it may be necessary for the rescuer to simultaneously descend with the victim to safety. IMPORTANT: Two-person descents with the SafEscape ELITE Device must not exceed a total combined weight (including clothing, harness, tools, etc.) of 551 lbs. (250 kg) and a total de- scent distance of 656 ft. (200 m). 1. Descend to the fall victim per the steps in the Single Person Descent. NOTE: When the rescuer reaches the victim's location, descent may be interrupted by a person located at the base of the descent or by the rescuer (see Controlling Descent). IMPORTANT: A secure hold must be maintained on the free end of the lifeline during this rescue procedure. If a second rescuer is located at base level, it is recommended that the free end of the lifeline be passed through the pigtail and secured in the cam cleats to prevent unintentional descent (see Controlling Descent). 2. Connect a rescue lanyard between the lifeline carabiner connected to the front D-ring of the rescuer's full-body harness and the back D-ring of the victim's full-body harness. 3. Once the victim is secured to the SafEscape Device, release the victim's fall arrest system by either cutting or detaching the suspending connecting device to free the victim for descent. NOTE: If a second rescuer is located at base level, the hoisting wheel may be used to raise the victim and rescuer up to a level where the rescuer can then detach the victim's fall arrest subsystem. Fold the hoisting wheel handle out and rotate the wheel clockwise to raise the victim. IMPORTANT: Prior to descent, always fold the handle back into the hoisting wheel to mini- mize vibration during descent. 4. To begin descent, release the free end of the lifeline. Descent speed is automatically controlled via the SafEs- cape's centrifugal brake. CAUTION: To avoid injury, always bend your knees in preparation for safe landing. $IWHUODQGLQJGLVFRQQHFWWKHOLIHOLQHIURPERWKWKHYLFWLP DQGUHVFXHU

CAUTION: To avoid injury, always bend your knees in preparation for safe landing. 6. After landing, disconnect the lifeline carabiner from the user's full-body harness. Alternating Descents (2 or More Persons) The SafEscape ELITE Rescue/Descent Device allows several people to descend, one after another, without having to reset the device. Uniquely bi-directionally engineered with locking carabiners on both ends of the lifeline, as one person completes a descent and unhooks from the lifeline, the next person at base level can hook onto the carabi- ner on the other end of the lifeline and begin descent. Each user should follow the procedure for single person descent. Fig. 5a Fig. 5b

Install the SafEscape Device to the anchorage via the attached anchorage carabiner. Carabiner must be in- stalled in such a way that the opening action cannot be duplicated by contact made with an object it is connected into or has the potential to come in contact with. Make sure carabiner is positioned so that its gate is never load bearing. Always visually check that the carabiner gate is completely closed and locked. NOTE: If another Miller approved anchorage connector is used, such as the rope anchor or anchor sling (See Fig. 1), be sure to follow the instructions supplied with the device at the time of shipment for proper installation.
