MSA launches Safety io - transforming safety through technology

ALTAIR io360 Safety io lo resMSA Safety, manufacturer and distributor of safety products, has set its sights on transforming the UK gas detection industry with the launch of its safety io technology

Safety io, a software services company founded and owned by MSA Safety, uses wireless technology and cloud computing to enable a wide range of ‘connected’ security activities and equipment.

Using MSA gas detection products as enablers, Safety io enables remote monitoring of gas level readings at the workplace, monitors the safety of associates, monitors the maintenance status of the equipment and, in the event of an emergency, informs workers of the need to evacuate by pressing a button. All to help those responsible for safety achieve and exceed safety objectives and eliminate unnecessary interruptions.

Gustavo Lopez, general manager for Safety io at MSA Safety, said, “Safety io challenges safety-minded organisations to expect more from their gas detection systems and programmes.

“Ultimately, the needs of those that use our Safety io technology are always the most important consideration. And while developing next-generation safety technology is of course hugely dependent on innovation, truly listening to and understanding customer needs and feedback to engineer the necessary hardware and software functionality is of equal importance.

“We appreciate the safety managers can sometimes struggle to fully focus on and make meaningful progress toward their company’s strategic safety goals. Often, their attention is re-directed to low-level tasks due to the interrupt-driven, data-starved reactive environment in which they operate. Our grid software services help safety managers to remove those distractions and simplify every aspect of their gas detection programmes, thus freeing up time to reinforce best practices and purse a safety-first, injury-free workforce.

“Our ultimate aim is to transform safety managers’ detection programmes from a headache into an empowering safety platform. And by combining best-in-class MSA detectors with our web-based Safety io Grid services, we’re doing just that.”
