Global PPE manufacturer to collaborate with leading connected safety platform company to create innovative smart products
April 23, 2018 – Eden Prairie, Minn. – Representatives from Corvex Connected Safety, the first worker-powered IoT safety platform, announced that PPE industry leader MCR Safety has joined the company’s strategic partner program. The Corvex Connected Safety Platform uses IoT infrastructure to create smart, connected work environments that engage and empower workers. The companies will collaborate to develop Smart PPE technology that integrates MCR Safety equipment with the Corvex solution.
-“We’re tremendously excited that MCR Safety has decided to join forces with our company and help bring more smart PPE products to market on the Corvex Connected Safety Platform,” said Joe O’Brien, founder of Corvex. “MCR has been a leader in the safety industry for nearly half a century, and their dedication to innovation and commitment to quality are well aligned with the overall Corvex mission.”
The Corvex Connected Safety Platform reduces the risk of injury and accidents while dramatically increasing the return on investment of safety programs. Corvex accomplishes this through a unique IoT-based infrastructure using sensors and smart PPE to provide relevant, real- time safety data that helps safety professionals predict and prevent incidents before they happen.
Devices used by the workers themselves to report possible hazards and relay information help create a stronger sense of engagement that contributes to productivity as well as better safety outcomes. Real-time data builds more comprehensive workplace information views for managers and executives, transforming the entire workforce into a committed, connected safety community throughout the organization.
“It makes sense to leverage the power of PPE with the benefits of real-time, meaningful communication where safety is concerned,” said Mitch Lewellyn, CEO of MCR Safety. “We believe the Corvex Connected Safety Platform is leading the market in worker-powered safety solutions. MCR needs to be part of transforming that vision into a new definition of safety for organizations around the world.”
Lewellen and O’Brien stated the terms of the new partnership included a significant financial investment from MCR Safety.
MCR Safety has forty-five years of experience as a leader in the field of personal protective equipment (PPE). The company’s assortment of offerings includes gloves, glasses, and garments that are made from the highest quality materials available to ensure maximum safety, comfort, and style.
