Safety & EPA Regulations

If there is one thing all downstream companies always strive for, it’s this: achieving balance between maximizing productivity and optimizing safety.

Adding to this dynamic now is the increased production demands created by increased supply. This raises the stakes when selecting a safety partner to help you protect your employees and your productivity levels.

Don’t assume that every safety supplier understands OSHA regulations or has the most recent certifications.

We manufacture EPA protocols at six laboratories specifically designated for this purpose. These facilities are part of our national network of more than 65 specialty gas labs, approximately two-thirds of which are ISO 9001-registered and three of which are also ISO/IEC 17025-accredited.

Airgas EPA protocols are prepared and analyzed in strict accordance with the EPA’s most current guidelines. All Airgas EPA protocols produced for the utilities market are certified to +/- 1 percent overall uncertainty guarantee.
