Safety in the making

Praxair wants to help you create a safer environment for your patients, visitors and staff. That’s why we help your nurses, physicians, and facility engineering and maintenance staff get the medical training they need to store, handle and use the gases and systems we supply.

Handling Medical Cylinder Gases Safely

Proper training for handling medical cylinder gases safely is an important step to ensuring a safe environment at your facility. Our training program is accredited by the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC) and individuals who complete it will receive one hour of Continuing Respiratory Care Education (CRCE) credit. The training is currently only available to medical facilities that have an account with Praxair. Prior to registering for training, please contact your sales representative to obtain a username and password.

Training for Medical Gas & Vacuum Utility Systems

Medical gas systems deliver gases that are classified as prescription drugs by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and are a life science asset and critical element of patient care. The Joint Commission and National Fire Protection Association specify the qualifications, orientation, training and education required for the users and operators of these systems. In addition, individuals who design, install, inspect, use and maintain utility systems should also have documented training and education.

The training is available from Medical Gas Certification, Inc. (MGCI), a leader in providing specialized training in the United States, and is recommended for clinical staff, respiratory therapy staff, facility engineering and maintenance staff, designers, inspectors, installers and verifiers.
