Our Company

Global Safety First, LLC, (GSF) is a Pennsylvania limited liability company founded in early 2015 with the purpose of improving respiratory protection equipment for professionals and the general public. GSF develops, manufactures, and markets unique disposable safety masks and respirators (ReadiMasks), designed to substantially protect people from modern-day threats.

The ReadiMask was created to be virtually weightless, small enough to be carried at all times, and affordable for everyone. It is for use in (1) emergencies caused by accidents, terrorism, or natural disasters, (2) hospitals, medical offices, and other health care settings, (3) industrial settings, (4) the military, and (5) any environment where an individual is exposed, or may be exposed, to dangerous particulate contaminants.

The patented ReadiMask is a multipurpose respirator that substantially protects against airborne particles and is designed to fit both adults and children. It is the only full-face respirator that seals to your face using a hypoallergenic medical adhesive at the perimeter of the mask. Masks that apply with elastic straps or ties do not fit properly, allowing gaps around the edges of the mask where contaminants can enter, but ReadiMask’s medical adhesive creates a tight seal that enables the filter and eyeshield to provide substantial protection. The ReadiMask is pocket-sized, virtually weightless, and available with or without the eyeshield.
