Safety Is Our Top Priority

Our goal is for our pipeline and energy facilities to operate safely every day so that the public, our employees and the environment aren’t affected by an incident involving our assets. Safety is, and always will be, our top priority.


"Our aim is for zero safety incidents; there’s no other goal that matters more.”

Norrie Ramsay
Senior Vice President, Technical Centre and Natural Gas Pipeline Project

A culture of safety

Our commitment to safety isn’t just a mantra – it’s how we work 24/7, 365 days of the year across our entire organization. If it isn’t safe, we won’t do it. By reinforcing a disciplined set of rules and providing rigorous training, we approach every day with our goal of a zero-incident workplace.
