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."
