MSA Joins Fit-Friendly Worksites Program

More than 1,800 companies thus far have been recognized by the American Heart Association for creating a corporate culture of health and wellness.

MSA announced Dec. 6 that its Pittsburgh-area facilities have been recognized as Platinum Level Fit-Friendly Worksites by the American Heart Association. This means the PPE manufacturer has demonstrated outstanding achievement in promoting good nutrition and physical fitness for its approximately 1,300 local employees. The Platinum Level is the highest honor in the AHA Fit-Friendly Worksites program.

MSA's announcement said the company's wellness program, MSAFit, deserves much of the credit for this achievement. Launched in 2003, the program encouraging a healthy lifestyle through incentives to employees who participate in health-related activities including health screenings, lunchtime awareness classes, health-risk assessments, and walking programs. Recently added to it were nutritional suggestions and healthy eating options at MSA's Cranberry Township, Pa., facilities, and these will be added in 2013 at other locations in the Pittsburgh area.

"At MSA, our people are the driving force behind our business success. They allow us to achieve our mission, to protect life, and that's why we continue to invest in the health and wellness of our workforce," said Paul Uhler, vice president of Global Human Resources and Corporate Communications for MSA. "We are honored to receive this recognition from the AHA for our efforts to establish a wellness program of this caliber. And we will remain committed to maintaining and improving this program for years to come."
