Two Saves from One Company!
I just wanted to let you know that your company has provided us with two very important “saves” over the past year. Save# 1. We had an employee using what was perceived to be a cut resistant glove (not MCR Safety glove) who received a laceration. The issue was that it was assumed that the gray material stitching in the palm was the same grade as the finger tips as the material was identical… (Not the case-as the only part of the glove cut resistant was the palm) I contacted you at MCR with my concern regarding the glove and the “misrepresentation” of the product. Once you were made aware of this-you sent me a 9178NF to trial-at no cost... The first week, an employee who normally wore the Level 2 palms only, was wearing these trial gloves. As he opened a box with the razor knife-the blade got hooked on the strap and ran across his palm… Had he been wearing the other gloves, numerous stitches would have been a minimum. See photo… He along with others are now a believer in this glove.
Save #2: Some employees wanted to trial a different style “work glove” that was user friendly, but still allowed them to handle sharps. You sent me 3611DT. Gloves were trialed for 4 weeks and have held up great. During this trial an employee had to reach under one of our manufactured parts to release a strap. (It is the only way to do this). During the process, he ran his hand over what would be considered a razor sharp burr. The chunk taken out of the glove did not reach his finger. The Diamond Tech worked! Again a great save! He made me aware of this incident and wanted to express his gratitude. See photo… He too is a believer.
Last but not least, our company has been honored to be SHARP certified. Senior leadership believes the safety of our employees is paramount. These two saves have certainly prevented A) An injury to our employees and B) helped us avoid two OSHA record-able incidents. So on behalf of employees and management here at MSM-thanks to you and your staff for working to help make Midstate Machine a much safer place. Kevin T. O’Leary EHS Specialist Midstate Machine (2018)
Great Feedback! See the response from an end user on Max3 and Max6 samples that were sent for trial.
“Thank you for the samples of the glasses. I had a couple craft employees use then and provide feedback. I spoke with one of the users yesterday, and he stated that by far they were the best he has used in the past 10 years. This was comments from a person who performs varying activities from mass concrete placement to plan reading. The feedback was all positive and future use was recommended.” Turner Construction (2018)
We Protect People! Jeremy with Airgas called with feedback on the UT2953. Their end user ordered samples of the UT2953L and as they were wearing them a heavy metal plate fell on the hand of the employee wearing the gloves. Safe to say the end user only walked away with only a bruised finger. Had he not had the right protection on it could have been a lot worse. (2018)
We Protect People! “I was on a Hunting trip, we were in Sanderson Texas, about 6 hours from San Antonio, about 3 hours from the nearest big city Del Rio Texas. It was the last day of the Hunt, we decided to Fire the rifles, and Pistols… you know the fun part of being out there. We had fired a number of weapons, calibers were 45ACP, Ar-15 5.56, 12 gauge shot gun. And then the newly acquired Tarus 44 Magnum came out. My brother fired 12 rounds through the pistol, and a friend fired another 6, so that was 18 rounds before I grabbed the Pistol. I loaded the rounds in could feel the barrel hot, so as I aimed was about to fire, I stopped and said whoa, I forgot to put my glassed on. I put (on) my glassed and ear plugs, I fired 2 rounds, and on the third round when I fired, I immediately felt the blow back which cut my face on the cheek area, your first reaction is to close your eyes, so as soon as felt the blast I closed my eyes and turned away. When I opened my eyes, my glasses were on the ground and I had blood running down my face, and my brother quickly started asking me if I was ok, and before I could say anything… he said dam your glassed saved you man, that stuff would have hit your right in your eye. As I started looking at the glasses we were shocked to see how hard it had hit them, I am not sure what happened with the round, it could have been the barrel was really hot or the round pretty much exploded once the firing pin hit it… Not sure, But one thing I know for sure is if I had not put on the glasses I would have had really severe damage to my eye or possibly lost it that day. So I am MCR for life, I will wear nothing other than MCR. I use them now in everything that I do. That’s my MCR Safety story…. Thanks for your time and have a great day… And I thank MCR for building a good quality product…” JR Longoria, Inside Sales Associate at WW Grainger. (2018)
BearKat Glasses: Hello MCR , I just wanted to thank you very much, for making the quality, and up to standards, safety glasses that you make!! I had an unfortunate accident recently , where a pistol blow up in my hand . I had a few pieces of synthetic plastic hit my face , but no real harm . I knew the condition of the lenses of my glasses because I hate when they get a bit scratched up , because I will of course , just get a new pair . So anyway, after the incident , I happened to glance at my glasses just for the heck of it, and couldn’t help notice a very small , but apparently very sharp , piece of brass that was embedded in the right lens. Obviously a piece of brass from the shell casing of the cartridge in the pistol . Not to mention I have not been working with any brass lately with these glasses on, of course. So , I’m not sure how much force and speed that it had as it was coming at me , but I’m sure that was enough to do some very painful and permanent damage. If you look real close in the picture, there is a diamond shaped glare from the flash of the camera. If you look at the bigger dot to the right of it, that is the piece of brass that they stopped . So again , thank you so much for a great product ! They work !!! Sincerely, -Tommy- (2018)
Dyneema Gloves: I love dyneema cut proof gloves best gloves I've ever wore. Colder in hell in the winter time though. I was looking for a local retail outlet for dyneema Memphis gloves. No others even come close to the quality of Memphis gloves and their commitment to safety and customer service. Steven Teter, 06/2017
US Defense Polarized Lens: I have used the US Defense with Polarized & Mirrored Lenses with their 100% U/V & UVA coatings as a Crane Operator in Texas. Headaches from the U/V & UVA have diminished. The Polarized lenses also help greatly when having to operate looking toward the Sun and reducing glare. I highly recommend these Safety Glasses for Equipment Operation. Thanks & God Bless, Jimmy Ray 03/2017
Tear_Away Safety Vest: Work issued a velcro tear-away safety vest for me and I was reluctant to wear a different vest than the one I already owned. My second day on the job, a truck malfunction happened and the automatic handle caught the vest and began to wrap me up extremely fast and I was thrown from the truck. If it wasn't for your tear-away safety vest, and I had been using my standard vest, I could have lost my arm or worse. You safety products have stood way above the others for a while, but now, i'll be coming to your company for all my safety needs. Thank you so much for making such an awesome product! 07/2016
