Corvex has recently partnered with HexArmor, global leaders in smart PPE manufacturing, to pilot the Corvex Connected Safety platform with several of their PPE products.
HexArmor's longstanding focus on developing and applying Smart PPE technology for their equipment products is a perfect match for the Corvex platform's innovative and advanced options for digitally transforming safety. Everything began for HexArmor with one glove and a never-before-seen technology and evolved into a robust PPE product line and Smart PPE, created with a focus on people and not just price. HexArmor employs over 150 safety professionals to solve difficult safety problems for leading companies in oil and gas, construction, energy, lumber, pulp and paper, transportation and other industries.
HexArmor shares the Corvex principle of worker powered safety and promoting engagement in safety and risk awareness at every level fo the organization. In product development HexArmor tailors features to the unique needs expressed by workers. The Corvex platform puts real time safety awareness in the hands of workers, so HexArmor and Corvex are a natural fit.
“From the beginning, HexArmor has been focused on redefining safety with the latest technology to transform workplaces, which is why we’re excited to be the first PPE manufacturer to partner with Corvex. With communication tools in the hands of workers, safety and compliance is viewed from the ground up, not from management down,” said Steve VanErmen, President and CEO of HexArmor. “We’ve always been a company to work side-by-side with the men and women who get the job done. This digital enhancement to PPE elements and safety communication hits close to home with our core mission of sending every worker home safe, every day.”
For HexArmor, the Corvex safety platform is the answer they've sought for years to enhance ways workers interact with their PPE products. With the platform they can integrate sensors and devices for worker communication into their smart PPE solutions, allowing workers to truly take control of their own safety. We look forward to helping them accomplish this goal.
