Working Toward Zero Incidents
Identifying risks and proactively seeking prevention measures is something we practice in all of our operating areas. Critical to this process is our Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) Compliance Assurance team. This team conducts audits across company operations, striving to identify potential safety or environmental hazards. In partnership with our Operations teams, changes are implemented to reduce EHS-related risk.
Should an incident occur, it is our commitment to learn from it and, where appropriate, improve our processes. To deliver on this commitment, we utilize a root cause investigation system to standardize our reporting, investigation and analysis of incidents. This system enables us to determine the root causes of incidents and ascertain where and what improvements are necessary.
Although pipelines are the safest and most efficient way to transport oil and natural gas, it is critical that we maintain our pipelines properly and educate the public about identifying leaks and preventing pipeline damage.
