At Praxair, we want to help you promote a safer work and clinical environment and improve the quality of your patient care. To do that, we offer a variety of services that help you stay ahead of ever-changing industry standards and regulations.
Praxair specialists can perform on-site monitoring for hazardous gases such as nitrous oxide and halogenated agents in operating rooms, obstetrics and recovery rooms. We also monitor ethylene oxide and glutaraldehyde in the central sterile department and other use points including respiratory and endoscopy departments.
Our site assessment measures safe levels in accordance with OSHA requirements and we provide the documentation required for the Joint Commission survey. Our team can also assist you when any corrective action is required. We provide a variety of solutions to reduce employee exposure including safe work and safety station inspections.
Federal and local agencies are keeping an increasingly sharp eye on employee exposure to hazardous chemicals at healthcare facilities worldwide. Non-compliance risks steep fines, stiff penalties and potentially compromises worker safety.
We offer a full line of testing and remediation services to help you measure, monitor and control employee exposure and indoor air quality throughout your facility — ensuring compliance with the regulations of Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), Joint Commission, Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), College of American Pathology (CAP), National Institute for Occupational, Safety and Health (NIOSH), and American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH).
With decades of experience in bulk, manifold and pipeline medical gas systems, we can inspect your new and existing source equipment and distribution systems to assess compliance. We can also evaluate your gas demand and recommend equipment changes and upgrades that can improve performance, prevent run-outs, and lower supply costs.
Praxair sells and services a broad line of equipment for medical and vacuum gas systems. Our technicians have years of experience installing and servicing major brands. Through medical gas in-services, we can also train your personnel to do their own installations on small projects, perform preventative maintenance and properly supervise subcontractors. We also provide emergency preparedness training for nurses and other personnel working with oxygen and other medical gases.
