Brady Honored with Environmental Protection 2014 New Product of the Year Award

Brady SPC's High Visibility Safety Chemical Mat earned first place in the Health Safety/Cleanup category

MILWAUKEE, Wis. — Brady (NYSE:BRC), a global leader in industrial and safety printing systems and solutions, today announced it earned the Environmental Protection 2014 New Product of the Year Award. The company won first place recognition in the Health & Safety/Cleanup category with its High Visibility Safety and Chemical Absorbent Mat.

This highly absorbent safety mat is specifically designed for all-purpose industrial applications. Featuring bright yellow caution coloring and a printed message, this product visually warns workers of potential risks.

"This honor is a testament to the hard work and innovation of our Brady SPC team.  By combining safety signage with ultimate absorbency, our mat solves common industry challenges to help reduce workplace slips, trips and falls."

The Environmental Protection New Product of the Year contest recognizes the outstanding achievements of industry manufacturers whose products are considered particularly noteworthy for making environmental professionals' jobs a little easier. Three experts from the environmental industry served as judges.
