CGA & GAWDA Subscription Program
Founded in 1913, the CGA’s primary mission is to develop and promote safety standards and practices for the safe manufacture, transportation, storage, transfilling, and disposal of industrial and medical gases and their containers. The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has accredited CGA as a standards developing organization and CGA is the recognized leader in the development of gas and equipment standards in North America and around the world, many of which are referenced by regulators at all levels of government.
There are two parts to this new relationship.
First CGA and GAWDA will sponsor a new Safety Improvement Award for GAWDA distributor members. The award will be given every year at the GAWDA annual meeting, as well as at CGA’s annual meeting, to the distributor with the greatest improvement in safety performance during the previous two years, and is based upon the total recordable case incidence rates as defined by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
Second, those companies participating in the award program will be given free access to CGA electronic publications. CGA has roughly 300 different publications addressing all aspects of the industrial and medical gases industry.
