MSA Safety Highlights Enhanced Connected Safety Solutions at National Safety Congress & Expo
Learn more about the innovative solutions designed for safety and productivity
PITTSBURGH, Oct. 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — When safety is your sole focus, it provides clear direction for developing the next generation of safety solutions to help workers around the world be safe, connected and more productive. MSA Safety, Inc. (NYSE: MSA), the leader in the development of safety solutions that help to protect people and facility infrastructures, will be highlighting its suite of connected safety solutions at the 2023 National Safety Congress and Expo in New Orleans, Louisiana, from October 23rd through 25th.
This year, MSA Safety will feature the latest enhancements to its Connected Work Platform. The platform is a fully-connected safety solution designed to provide data analytics that help to increase compliance, better manage device fleets and increase visibility into worker safety. This allows for automating previously manual tasks and eliminating paperwork to allow for more proactive safety management.
The Connected Work Platform is powered by the ALTAIR io™ 4 Gas Detection Wearable. Built from the ground up, the innovative direct-to-cloud design allows the ALTAIR io 4 to seamlessly connect with MSA Grid cloud-based software and the ALTAIR io Dock to deliver real-time visibility to help enhance worker safety. The device works in concert with the company’s MSA+ subscription service, and together, the ALTAIR io 4 device and MSA+ create a versatile and powerful hardware/software combination that can simplify safety program management to help drive safety and productivity across workers, worksites and workflows.
“Our focus is on helping to keep workers safe. We don’t just make products, we invent, we innovate, and we create next generation safety technologies,” said Stephanie Sciullo, President of MSA Americas. “At this year’s National Safety Congress, you’ll see how we’re using technology to enhance our industry-leading products that connect and detect for safety and for sustainability, while helping to make work safer, easier and more productive.”
To dive deeper into the world of connected safety, NSC attendees are invited to join MSA Safety for special session in the NSC Learning Lab called “The Power of a Connected Safety Program: Visibility, Compliance, and Accountability.” Taking place on Tuesday, Oct. 24, at 10 a.m., MSA Safety Connected Services and Solutions Manager Anne Osbourn and MSA Safety Connected Work Product Platform Director Chris Borneo will discuss how safety managers can use data-driven insights to help create adaptable and proactive safety programs while driving visibility, productivity and efficiency.
In addition to connected solutions, NSC attendees can learn more about a broad range of product safety solutions that include respiratory protection, fall protection and head protection. New this year, MSA will debut the MSA G1 Cadet Supplied-Air Respirator.
