Taking safety to new heights

MSA gears up to showcase innovative safety solutions at Safety & Health Expo 2019, taking place from 18-20 June at London’s ExCeL.

For industries that are inherently dangerous and require men and women to work in hazardous situations and conditions, protecting people and sending them home safely at the end of each day is paramount.

Developing a safer world

Global Safety company, MSA, is getting ready to showcase its range of safety solutions at the upcoming Safety & Health Expo. During the three-day event, the company will be taking the opportunity to talk to customers and industry peers about the latest trends in safety, and how it is continually innovating its products and solutions to meet the latest safety needs.

From its V-Series range of fall protection harnesses, to its latest SCBA (self-contained breathing apparatus) for industry, the company is excited about the opportunity this event brings.

“Protecting people is what MSA is all about – be that while working at height, fighting fires or maintaining oil rigs and telecoms towers,” said Jennifer McGurrin, General Manager of Global Fall and Industrial Head Protection at MSA. “For us, innovation must be a constant, from developing new products to enhancing what we already have. We hope through this event to demonstrate some of our successes in the UK market. Visitors can see, touch and feel out products – they will even be able to have a go on our virtual reality experience, which really gives a feel for our products in action.”

Creating a safer workplace with software as a service

Making its Safety & Health Expo debut will be Safety io – MSA’s first subsidiary focused entirely on leveraging MSA’s market-leading gas detection technology with industry-leading innovation in cloud-based software.

Safety io uses wireless technology and cloud-based computing to enable a broad range of ‘connected’ safety activities. With MSA’s gas detection products serving as enablers, Safety io delivers the ability to remotely monitor gas level readings in the workplace, track the safety of associates, monitor instrument maintenance status and, in the event of an emergency, notify workers of the need to evacuate with the push of a button.

“In many respects, Safety io challenges safety-minded organisations to expect more from their gas detection systems and programs,” said Gustavo Lopez, General Manager for Safety io. “The services we offer are designed to enable worksite managers to make informed decisions, reinforce best practices and pursue a safety-first, injury-free workplace.”

Software platforms currently available from Safety io – which are available as subscription-based services – include Fleet Manager and Live Monitor. Fleet Manager allows organisations to proactively track and monitor the calibration of their gas detection equipment and make standard operating procedures more efficient. Live Monitor enables the remote tracking and monitoring of all workers performing difficult and hazardous job functions in real time fashion.

Visitors to the show can explore these and other new product solutions and latest technological advancements from MSA, as well as speak with the company’s team of safety specialists, on Stand SH2270. To secure your free place at the show, click on the link below.
