MUSTANG SURVIVAL presents latest industrial safety solutions at international workboat show 2010

November 22, 2010 (Bellingham, WA) – Michael Grupa, Mustang Survival’s Business Development Director, Professional Markets, will be presenting at the International WorkBoat Show on December 3 in New Orleans, LA. Along with two other notable professionals in the marine safety market, Grupa will be speaking in the WorkBoat Professional Series aimed at keeping industrial marine professionals informed on crew safety. Topics include flotation safety, man overboard strategies, and other marine safety tools.
Mustang will also be showcasing its complete line of flotation and climate protection solutions for industrial marine professionals who work near and off shore. Among its latest solutions is the MD3188, the market’s FIRST and ONLY USCG approved inflatable work vest. The MD3188 is a lightweight, highly durable inflatable personal flotation device (PFD) made with abrasion resistant fabric and designed for maximum mobility with minimal heat burden. Using Hydrostatic Inflation Technology (HIT)™, the MD3188 will only inflate when submerged under four or more inches of water and won’t inflate due to high humidity, rain, or spray. The MD3188 was the top rated PFD in a recent study conducted by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).
“I am excited to be presenting on a topic that is a key priority to me and to the industry,†said Grupa, “Crew safety is always on top of the list, and even more so during tough economic times. By keeping marine professionals informed of the latest cost effective marine safety solutions out there, we can help them make informed decisions that can save lives, regardless of budget. The MD3188 is a great example of how we continue to integrate new technology into practical and cost effective quality safety solutions for marine professionals.â€
Other Mustang industrial marine solutions include the economical universal-fit Type V foam work vests with fall protection back slots and the high visibility Type III flotation jackets and inflatable vests.
