MSA Debuts State-of-the-Art Safety Training Centre in Cranberry Township

Global safety equipment manufacturer MSA has unveiled a new state-of-the-art safety-training centre at the Regional Learning Alliance (RLA) in Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania, US.

Located just steps away from the company’s corporate headquarters in Cranberry Woods, this three-storey indoor training complex is packed with an intricate rig of ladders, platforms, manholes and escape windows, allowing MSA to simulate a myriad of true-to-life worker safety scenarios.

MSA will utilise this world-class facility to train industrial workers, construction contractors, utility workers and firefighters on how to properly select, inspect and use personal protective equipment (PPE) in a hands-on, application based atmosphere.

Confined spaces training receives special emphasis, utilising custom enclosures to practice climbing and crawling, as well as provisions for pre-entry atmospheric testing / monitoring and related respiratory protection devices. Instruction on the repair and maintenance of gas detection instruments and other PPE is also available to provide end-users the confidence to run their own maintenance programmes at their home facilities.

In addition to the hands-on safety training areas, the centre also includes a completely modular classroom setting consistent with the continuing education mission of the RLA.

This new facility, which represents nearly a $1m investment for the company, makes it possible for MSA to offer a wide array of training courses, covering all of MSA’s product lines across nearly every industry the company serves.
