Home Safety Council Awards MSA Safety Works for Product Innovation

MSA (NYSE: MSA - News) announced today that its consumer products group, MSA Safety Works, has earned a Commendation Award from the Home Safety Council for its Small Faces Safety Glasses.

MSA Safety Works received this recognition for outstanding product innovation in consumer safety. The Home Safety Council presents the awards annually to manufacturers who advance safety at home through product design and development.

"We're very pleased with this recognition by the Home Safety Council, especially knowing we were measured against some of the best known brands in the home improvement industry," said John Quinn, Retail and Construction Market Manager for MSA. "Developing child safety products gets young users thinking about home safety at an early age. We see this as an important step in our education efforts because research shows that more than 90% of Do-It- Yourselfers do not think about safety when tackling home improvement projects."

Developed to accommodate the smaller faces of women and children, Small Faces Safety Glasses are appreciably narrower than standard size glasses. To improve fit and comfort, the glasses come with flexible rubber-tipped temples. Anti-fog and anti-UV lenses help block debris and sunlight from entering the side of the glasses, while helping protect the wearer from high-impact projectiles.
