Face-to-face with safety

Personal-issue facepieces are now an affordable safety measure, thanks to the latest MSA G1 facepiece, designed specifically to eliminate expensive electronic components to enhance its cost-effectiveness.

The new design also minimises the weight of the facepiece itself, which reduces stress and fatigue and improves workers’ overall performance level. This design also means there are no electronic components on the outside of the facepiece that may result in snag and entanglement hazards.

As an additional safety feature, the MSA G1 facepiece is equipped with cross-contamination prevention to reduce the spread of illness when facepieces are shared among workers. When used in conjunction with the MSA G1 Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA), it is also equipped with a speaking diaphragm to increase speech clarity while off-air.

In addition, the new facepiece was designed specifically to be used in conjunction with existing MSA demand valves and differing connectors, such as threaded and plug. This means that users don’t have to buy a new MSA apparatus to be able to use the G1 facepiece, as it can be adapted to any MSA breathing apparatus or supplied-air system.
