Safety is at the very core of the work we do as an industry and natural gas utilities work tirelessly to help ensure the safety of their customers, communities and employees. AGA’s continued enhancement of pipeline safety highlight the commitments from our membership to work collaboratively and ensuring that pipeline safety remains a leading priority for operators in the natural gas industry. This collaboration requires the support of regulators and policy makers at the federal, state and local levels. Customers also play an important role in pipeline safety with the responsibility to call 811 before digging, and 911 if they smell natural gas.
AGA is proud of the role it plays in working with other stakeholders so that pipeline safety regulations reflect a reasonable, practicable, and cost-effective approach in enhancing safety. Additional details about pipeline safety and the safety of natural gas can be found here.
