It’s finally summer, and while you are enjoying fun in the sun, it’s still important to be safe. June has been National Safety Month, a time when thousands of organizations across the country focus on reducing leading causes of accidents at work, on the road and in communities.
The Department of Transportation calls pipelines the safest mode of energy transportation, but that doesn’t mean INGAA members –and the community – can’t work continuously to do even better. Our overall goal is to obtain a perfect record of safety with a relentless pursuit of improvement.
One of our primary focuses is to educate the public through two-way communication about ongoing pipeline progress and activities. We are committed to engaging with our stakeholders and helping them stay as informed and as safe as possible. This is why we provide resources through America’s Energy Link that discuss safety and precautions the public should take in regard to pipelines. Whether you’re interested in learning more about pipelines in your area or are thinking about digging near or on your property, safety comes first, and we want to help answer any questions you may have.
At the end of the day, our number one priority is to keep the public safe. You can visit the safety tab on www.ingaa.org/energylink to see all the resources regarding public safety and pipelines. And always remember to call 811 before you start your next digging project.
