Are you protecting your greatest asset?

100,000 miles of blood vessels and 100 billion neurons enable the brain to make 35,000 decisions every day. That’s 2,000 decisions per hour. One every two seconds. The head is our greatest asset and most valuable tool, which is why it’s so important to protect it.

At MSA we disregard the notion that hard hats merely serve one purpose. Physical safety is of course paramount, but we mustn’t underestimate the associated benefits of great head protection:

  • Happy, more confident workers
  • A more productive workforce
  • A more efficient business
