MSA Awarded National Wellness Recognition By The American Heart Association

PITTSBURGH, Dec. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MSA (NYSE: MSA), the global leader in the development and manufacture of safety products, announced today that its Pittsburgh-area facilities have been recognized as Platinum Level "Fit-Friendly Worksites" by the American Heart Association (AHA).  MSA, which employs approximately 1,300 people locally, was recognized for demonstrating outstanding quality in promoting employee nutrition and physical fitness.  The Platinum Level is the highest honor in the AHA's Fit-Friendly Worksites program. 

Instrumental in helping MSA earn this recognition was the company's wellness program called MSAFit.  Launched in 2003, the program provides associates with opportunities to improve their health and wellness by encouraging a healthy lifestyle.  MSAFit offers incentives to associates who actively participate in health-related activities including health screenings, lunchtime awareness classes, health-risk assessments, and walking programs.  Most recently, MSA enhanced its wellness program to include nutritional suggestions and healthy eating options at MSA's Cranberry Township facilities, with plans to implement similar improvements at other Pittsburgh-area locations in early 2013 as well. 

"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," Mr. Uhler said.

A catalyst for positive change in the American workplace, the Fit-Friendly Worksites program recognizes companies that are distinguished in promoting worksite health and wellness.  This annual recognition is driven by a rigorous set of criteria and recognizes organizations on two levels, Gold and Platinum.
