​Anaheim, CA – The Metals Service Center Institute on Oct. 20 unveiled customized tools available to MSCI members through its partnership with the National Safety Council. These new resources are part of MSCI's commitment to deliver relevant safety resources for its members.

Optimized for the metals industry, the new tools available to MSCI members include:

The announcement was made at MSCI's Safety Conference, collocated with the 2016 NSC Congress & Expo in Anaheim, CA.

"Advocating for an industry-wide safety culture is a critical part of all that we do at MSCI," said M. Robert Weidner III, MSCI president & CEO. "At MSCI, we take partnership very seriously; for us it means building a long, lasting relationship. We believe in working with the very best, which is why we've chosen to partner with NSC, the recognized leader in safety."

"For more than 100 years, NSC has been devoted to making our world safer," added Deborah A.P. Hersman, NSC president and CEO. "We are pleased to join with MSCI as they elevate safety and bring it to their members. By blending their industry expertise with our expertise in safety, together we will help companies create strong, lasting safety cultures."
