Environment Project | Praxair Surface Technologies – Concord, NH
At the conclusion of its 2012 Safety Commitment Program, employees at PST’s facility in Concord, NH, spent a day restoring the wrought iron fencing around the Old North Cemetery and President Franklin Pierce’s gravesite. The group had previously met with the city of Concord to identify potential projects and, after careful analysis, chose this restoration project because it was a good fit with the PST employees’ abilities. After a careful study of restoration techniques, the team repaired the foundation, replaced posts and painted the fence. PST also used this project to underscore the importance of Praxair core values, including safety, planning and operational discipline. The work on this national historic site was completed over a three-month period, and PST had 100% employee involvement with this project.
