Pipeline Operators Embrace These Safety Principles
Only with a goal of zero safety incidents can we minimize accidents. Pipeline operators believe that every incident is preventable and work to that high standard.
Not only do senior leaders of pipeline companies value safety, but safety is emphasized at every level of the organization from employees who accept personal responsibility for safety to front-line managers who are vital to reinforcing a safety culture and implementing continuous improvement.
A Culture of Safety
Pipeline operators embrace the need to provide a workplace culture where safety is an enduring value that all employees share, act upon, learn from, are rewarded for and judged upon.
Pipeline operators believe that no matter how safe they already are, they can always improve safety. Vision, commitment, culture, and systems are necessary to improve safety continuously.
Learn from Experience
Pipeline operators learn how they can improve safety from their own experiences, and by sharing lessons learned industry-wide with other pipeline operators.
Systems for Success
Management systems demonstrate that safety efforts are succeeding by measuring performance, tracking changes and confirming improvements.
Energy liquid pipeline operators are proud of their industry-leading technology. From in-line inspections with diagnostic robots traveling inside pipelines called “smart pigs” to innovative ways to interpret integrity data, operators constantly research and develop new ways to maximize safety.
Communicate with Stakeholder
Operators know communicating with the public and stakeholders who value safety, from advocates to the government, is vital to improving safety.
