We’re proud to announce that our CEO Dr Alex Birrell has been named in the 2014 Australian Financial Review and Westpac 100 Women of Influence Awards!

Alex says, “I feel honoured to join such an impressive group of women recognised this year and previous years. The recognition brings into focus our vision for all staff working with airbourne hazards to have access to easy to use, comfortable and high protection respiratory masks. Without this, they risk long term health issues that affect themselves, their families and the community. Our impact is to have long term improvements in global workplace safety.”
