Public Safety and Awareness

“Within TransCanada, safety is all part of our commitment to responsibly and reliably deliver the energy needs of North America. I’m proud that for over 60 years we have consistently had one of the best safety records across our industry. Our Public Awareness Program educates our stakeholders about living and working safely near our pipelines in a way that goes beyond regulatory requirements — we care deeply about the communities where we operate and the employees and contractors who work at our facilities. We are never complacent or satisfied with our performance — which is one of the reasons why we continue to partner with industry by sharing best practices and investing in new technologies that promote safe and efficient operations."

— James (Jim) Baggs, Executive Vice President, Operations and Engineering


TransCanada: Focused on Safety

TransCanada is aware that recent events have heightened public concern about pipeline safety. A fundamental principle for the company and the entire pipeline industry is the protection of the public from the effects of pipeline incidents.

The pipeline industry benefits from clear regulations and robust safety standards that have been in place for decades and that cover the life cycle of pipeline assets.

Safety is paramount in the construction, operation, and maintenance of TransCanada's 57,000 kilometres (35,500 miles) of underground natural gas and oil pipeline in North America. TransCanada employs industry best practices during construction and then follows a rigorous pipeline integrity management program to ensure the safety of the public and the protection of the environment.

TransCanada wants the affected public to know as much as possible about how underground utilities such as pipelines operate. An informed public complements TransCanada's efforts to ensure the safe operation of all its assets.
