Taking Safety Seriously

Praxair carefully reviews each step in our product lifecycle to ensure that
products not only meet government regulations, but also meet Praxair’s
demanding design, quality and safety standards.

Praxair is consistently a top safety performer — with recordable injury and lost work case rates that are five times better than the U.S. industrial average and three times better than the U.S. chemical industry average. We maintain this level of safety by actively identifying risk factors and working to continuously improve performance worldwide in every key safety metric. Praxair distribution drivers consistently achieve a very low vehicle accident rate. Our facilities regularly achieve Praxair’s goal of “zero accidents, zero injuries” in any given quarter, and health, safety and the environment are critical considerations when we develop new products and processes or design and operate our production facilities. Praxair recognizes the importance of your team and facility’s safety and how both directly impact your productivity and bottom line. That’s why our commitment to excellent safety performance prompts customers to call on Praxair for their metfab shop’s gas supply and system needs. We know that safety is a priority for your metfab shop — let Praxair partner with you to find ways to enhance your productivity.
