"We are very proud of the Oilind Safety brand and its heritage of more than 40 years of protecting workers," said Rusty Coker, President - Airgas On-Site Safety Services. "However, we have found that many customers were unaware of our affiliation with Airgas Inc. and therefore didn't realize the scope of services available to them."
Airgas On-Site Safety Services is an Airgas company focused on serving the on-site safety equipment and safety management service needs of customers. With standalone branches and service centers on location at customer sites, Airgas On-Site Safety Services provides breathing air equipment, monitors, fall protection, safety training and inspections, as well as safety equipment maintenance and repair.
