"To integrate safety and economic driving to reduce fuel cost and CO2 emissions is a fantastic approach in terms of corporate responsibility."
Praxair, Inc. is the largest industrial gases company in North and South America and on one of the largest worldwide. The company produces, sells and distributes atmospheric, process and specialty gases, as well as high-performance surface coatings.
Due to the nature of the loads they carry on a daily basis, the safety of the drivers in a fleet is one of the key factors for companies in the oil and gas sector. Praxair gave itself the challenge of having zero accidents, and therefore required a safety program to help their drivers improve their behavior.
Praxair chose a MiX Telematics system provided by Kienzle, the national distributor of MiX Telematics solutions in Germany. It allows them to monitor compliance in line with their strict and comprehensive safety regulations. The system also offers immediate notifications in case of any minor violation, and an audit trail is done on each event that occurs during a given period.
