At MSA, health, safety and well-being are what drive us to not only develop technologically-advanced safety equipment to help protect firefighters on the job but to advocate for their overall head-to-toe health. That’s a major reason why MSA awarded 30 firefighters with scholarships to an O2X Human Performance Workshop – the first of which is taking place this week in Champaign, Ill.
The O2X Human Performance Workshop is designed to help firefighters start, stay and finish their careers strong. Wherever firefighters are in their health, wellness, and safety journey, MSA wants to help maximize performance by offering firefighters the chance to participate in this life-changing, physical and mental health optimization program. While the first scholarship-sponsored workshop is this week, two additional sessions are planned for Miami, Fla. and Austin, Texas November 13 – 16.
“MSA’s mission has always been about protecting the health and safety of workers, and the products we develop address the protective equipment aspects of that mission,” said Steve Blanco, President of MSA’s business in the Americas. “But our partnership with O2X is more about habits, practices and overall firefighter health, and what we, as a leading safety equipment manufacturer, can do to support the industry’s growing focus and awareness of this important issue.”
“Working with firefighters is extremely inspiring,” said Adam La Reau, co-founder of O2X and a former U.S. Navy SEAL. “We are fortunate to have the opportunity to help these men and women thrive and to partner with MSA, who shares our mission and is seeking ways to protect firefighters both inside and out.”
