Honeywell Opens First-of-Its-Kind Life Safety Training And Customer Experience Center In Houston

HOUSTON, Sept. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The International Labor Organization estimates that every 15 seconds worldwide, a worker loses his or her life due to a work-related injury or illness. More than 650 workers died in the United States last year as a result of falls, slips or other missteps in the workplace, according the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. To help educate customers and policy makers on the importance of workplace safety and prevention of serious accidents, Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today opened a first-of-its-kind Life Safety Training and Customer Experience Center (CEC) in Houston.

The $3 million facility will serve as the preeminent location in the U.S. for customer workforce training and features a 10,000-square-foot facility dedicated to interactive training and repair services. The center will provide an immersive experience for customers to interact in real-world work environments using Honeywell's personal protective equipment, including fall protection harnesses, hardhats, self-contained breathing apparatus, portable gas detection equipment, and products for gas, fire and smoke detection.

"Honeywell recognizes the urgent need for heightened safety equipment and training to ensure worker safety improves in the U.S. and throughout the world," said Mark Levy, president, Honeywell Life Safety. "We chose Houston for this facility because of the concentration of top global oil and gas, energy and industrial companies in the area, as well as it being a major hub for our customers across Latin America. Honeywell will leverage the CEC and training facility to educate workers on how to be safe in the workplace, even when the environment is not."

The CEC showcases the Honeywell equipment necessary to keep potentially hazardous workplaces safe. It also enables customers to receive hands-on education and features nine simulators that replicate industry applications and potentially hazardous environments, including a simulated catwalk and pipe track, climbing pole, confined tank, drilling tower, training tower, ladder rescue simulator confined space simulator and wind simulator.
