About MPSA 

Since 1991, MPSA has been a recognized leader in the safeguarding of process and manufacturing environments. Our team of safety consultants, engineers, designers, project managers, and technicians will help you comply with required machine guarding safety standards without compromising your processes. 

At the end of the day, the importance of machine safety can’t be underestimated.

In 2016, nearly 5,190 individuals died in work-related accidents. In human terms, this means that every day, twelve individuals leave for work, but did not safely arrive back home. Assisting companies to provide safe and productive work environments—and getting mothers, fathers, sons, and daughters home safely at the end of each day—is the core mission of the Machine & Process Safety Assessment Group (MPSA).

We offer machine safeguarding solutions such as safety surveys and machine risk assessments; OSHA-compliant machine guarding (with or without integrated safety controls); point-of-operation guards for machine tools such as lathes, drill presses, and milling machines; machine safety training and other safety services.

We can also help you protect your personnel by reducing exposure to major electrical hazards, such as arc flash. We can provide Permanent Electrical Safety Devices (PESDs), lockout/tagout (LOTO) kits, awareness signs, and other products to maximize safety in the workplace.

MPSA is a division of Airline Hydraulics Corporation, an ISO 9001:2015 certified distributor of fluid power and automation products and engineered systems. As a division of Airline, we can distribute a wide array of machine safeguarding components, such as interlock switches, safety light curtains, safety relays, and network devices.
