WorldSkills International (WSI) would like to welcome 3M Occupational Health and Environmental Safety as its tenth Global Industry Partner (GIP). 3M serves customers through five business segments. They are: industrial, safety, consumer, electronics and health care. These business segments increase speed and efficiency by sharing technological, manufacturing, marketing and other resources. With globally recognized brands like Post-it, Scotch, Nexcare, Scotchlite, Peltor, Speedglas and Thinsulate, they are a strong customer driven company and WSI is pleased to be working in partnership with 3M.

Over the years, their innovations have improved daily life for hundreds of millions of people all over the world. They have made driving at night easier, made buildings safer, and made consumer electronics lighter and more energy efficient.
