Leaders at fall protection company Pure Safety Group (PSG) and HSE Global Series, the UK-based safety focused education and networking association, announced today that the organizations have formed a new exclusive partnership to educate companies and their employees on fall protection to reduce the risks of working at height. The agreement is effective immediately, through the end of 2021.
PSG and HSE Global will kick off their partnership at the HSE Global North American Congress, happening virtually now, Nov. 9-10. In 2021, PSG will play a major role on the topic of fall protection at two more HSE Global congresses, held in the UK. At the events and throughout the year, PSG will be an ongoing educational resource for advancements in fall protection equipment innovation, dropped objects risk mitigation, and height safety and rescue training. HSE Global clients will have access to PSG safety resources, including engineered services expertise, fall protection planning, information on ever-changing safety standards for compliance, care and maintenance of equipment, and training. Current access to PSG knowledge will be through the virtual booths at HSE Global events, where safety leaders can get real-time guidance.
According to PSG CEO Jeff Ward, the new partnership is part of the company’s strategy to create strong industry alliances to continue to enhance at-height safety throughout the world.
“Worker falls and dropped objects from height are leading causes of death and serious injury in a wide variety of industries – from construction to energy and utilities to telecom and transportation,” said Paul Clark, founder and CEO of the HSE Global. “HSE Global clients have indicated they want more education and solutions for this high-priority business risk and, as the largest company dedicated exclusively to global fall protection, PSG is the right source.”
“This is an important global partnership that allows us to share our knowledge in order to help protect and save workers’ lives,” said Ward. “This allows PSG to bring together our strong presence and history in the USA with our recent expansion of product lines globally, to safety leaders within companies that have workers at height.”
