Praxair had a very strong safety section, with data concerning incidents and lost workdays, as well as a strong driver safety record, even though that is not graded in the PSI. However, they fell short a bit in the human rights section, as they had almost no points from there besides nondiscrimination policies. Praxair responded very quickly to questions about its use of units, and was very helpful with an issue dealing with GHG emissions. Their helpfulness is admirable, and, though it will not score them any more points, it is the kind of attitude we are looking for in companies. Analyzed by William P. Alston, and posted to the web on 6/13/2007.
At Praxair, doing business is always a gas. The company produces and sells atmospheric gases (oxygen, nitrogen, argon, and others) as well as process and specialty gases (CO2, helium, and hydrogen) for the chemicals, food and beverage, semiconductor, and health care industries. Depending on a client company's gas needs, Praxair can build an on-site gas plant or provide gases by the cylinder. The company's Praxair Surface Technologies subsidiary supplies high-temperature and corrosion-resistant metallic, ceramic, and powder coatings mainly to the aircraft, plastics, and primary metals industries. Praxair Healthcare Services supplies hospitals and the medical homecare industry. Source: Hoovers
