Airgas wins third consecutive CGA Cylinder Gas Transportation award


Airgas, Inc. has received a fleet safety award from the Compressed Gas Association (CGA) – the US industrial and medical gas industry’s standard-setting organisation for the promotion of safety.

This is the third consecutive year that Airgas has won the award. Peter McCausland, Airgas CEO commented on the achievement, “We are honoured to be recognised by the CGA for having the best safety record among large cylinder gas fleets.”

He added, “Our drivers covered more than three million miles last year in safely meeting the needs of our cylinder gas customers. When you transport cylinder gases, those are very demanding miles. We cannot over state the importance of safety in our industry and we work hard to improve our already safe performance every day.”

The CGA calculates its Fleet Safety awards on a CGA member’s total vehicle accident frequency rate per million miles driven during the year. The Association presented Duane Young, former Director of the Airgas SAFECOR organisation and now Senior Engineer of Airgas Gas Operations, with the Charles H. Glasier Safety Award.
