Safety of product design
The safety of our customers, our customers’ customers and everyone who comes in contact with our products is our top priority. The testing of every Worthington high pressure cylinder is process integrated and exceeds, by far, all regulatory requirements. Each and every cylinder is tested multiple times before it leaves our facility. This makes the Worthington logo the most desirable one to have in your cylinder fleet.
Safety of supply
Once you have chosen Worthington Industries as your supplier for steel cylinders, you can comfortably concentrate on the other aspects of your business. You can count on our near 100% on-time delivery of the high-tech packaging you need in order to supply your gases to your customers. Worthington Industries produces on two separate production lines; that, and using the latest business management systems, guarantees for you the safe, reliable, and on-time supply of your gas packaging needs.
Safety of employees
A safe working environment for our employees is also a key concern for us. Worthington Industries received the OHSAS 18000 certification in 2005. This program is an occupational health and safety management system and helps us to better manage on-the-job health and safety risks and improve its performance. Corporate and national safety program awards have confirmed our commitment to the safety of our employees.
We work hard to minimize the environmental impact of our operations, products and services. Our principle is to meet or exceed all environmentally related laws and regulations by practicing an environmentally-friendly business and production concept. The application of Our Philosophy and the Corporate Code of Conduct are additional guideposts in helping us to meet our commitments in the area of environmental protection.
We have established an optimum combination of avoiding and re-utilization in our waste disposal process as well as an economic use of resources. This leads to an increased quality of our environment- and work-place conditions, and cost reduction.
Continuous environmental improvement practices:
- Electricity generation through hydraulic power
- Energy recovery from gas heated furnaces
- Heating by means of exhaust gases and heat transfer from equipment
- Closed circuit cooling water
- Onsite sewage plant
- Air filteration system
- Use of biologically disposable solvents and detergents
- Sorting of disposables according to waste disposal rules
