The world’s first hard hat made from renewable resources!
MSA has always been a pioneer in safety, starting more than 100 years ago with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) designed to better protect underground miners. That tradition continues into the next century with the V-Gard GREEN — the world’s first sustainable protective helmet.
V-Gard GREEN helmets offer the same quality you expect from classic MSA V-Gard helmets. This helmet is third-party SEI certified as Type I, Class E under ANSI/ISEA Z89.1-2009 and CSA Z94.1-2005, and the shell is USDA Certified Biobased.
Frost & Sullivan (F&S), a 50-year old global research organization presented MSA with the “2013 Global New Product Innovation Leadership Award in Head Protection.” F&S indicated that with this highly commendable product innovation, MSA pioneered the concept of sustainable nature-inspired product development into the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) industry.
V-Gard GREEN was named "2013 Environmental Protection New Product of the Year" in the New Technology - Industry category awarded by Environmental Protection On-Line (EPOL). EPOL is the comprehensive, online information resource for environmental professionals. The award honors the outstanding achievements of manufacturers whose products are considered particularly noteworthy for making environmental professional's jobs a little easier.
