    What if...

    More than 35 years ago, we went to the shipyards to observe welders. They blindly struck arcs as they continually nodded their helmets down. They were accidentally flashed by other welders, or even themselves. We asked, "What if…welders could always see, even with their helmets down?' Since then, we have been systematically addressing ergonomic challenges that welders face.

How Greenbrier keeps building.

As a company that strives for continuous improvement while keeping every employee safe, Greenbrier was the perfect site for a field trial of the 3M™ Adflo™ Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR) System. Their commitment to identify, evaluate and control risks ensures their status as an industry leader.

See the case study.

"It's awesome. I wouldn't go back to the regular hood. I have better peripheral vision and can do multiple things with the same unit on. I'd recommend it to everyone."
