Okay can we first acknowledge the picture above? Let's think about all the time and effort that went into that masterpiece. Think of the people involved... the two guys in the photo (are they professional Hard Hat models? Engineers who had free time? Did they plan to wear the same shirt or was that a happy accident?), there was a photographer, probably people to help with background and lights, a whole team! All just to make sure we know what the chinstraps on the helmets look like fitted on a person.... the serene looks off into the distance are just a hilarious bonus.
I mention all that for two reasons, one is that picture is hands down the funniest thing I will see all day... and two because it is that attention to detail that sets MSA Safety apart. They have been around for over 100 years (Founded in 1914), and for that entire time the safety of workers in dangerous industries have been their primary concern. If you work in the Oil & Gas fields then you probably already know about MSA, but if not you need to check out their intense line of safety products. Like the V-Gard Hard Hats (with or without the fashionable chin straps pictured above), the ALTAIR Gas Detectors, or their line of Fall Protection Equipment.
But talk is cheap, and as the picture above proves... images speak volumes... so let's see this stuff in action:
As one of the YouTube comments on that video says " The classic is still the best." So look up MSA Safety for yourself and see why, you might even win an awesome prize like a YETI Cooler (enter here)... I'm gonna go look up how to get into the hard helmet modeling industry.
