Spectra Energy is committed to building and operating safe pipelines through development and application of technically superior, effective practices.
We are dedicated to the improvement of these practices by:
- Improving our safety performance,
- Increasing the service reliability to our customers, and
- Becoming the service provider of choice for the communities we operate in.
High standards of safety and environmental performance underpin a culture of continual improvement which is reflected in our safety vision and EHS Policy.
Our employees and contractors are committed to continuous safety improvement, resulting in a zero injury and zero work-related illness culture.
We work closely with local, state and federal agencies in the U.S. and Canada to ensure our pipelines meet or exceed regulatory requirements for safety.
We also developed relationships and cooperation with local and regional emergency response officials, dating back to the 1940's in many locations. Company employees meet or call upon these officials at least once a year to discuss pipeline safety and emergency preparedness issues.
Periodically, Spectra Energy employees and local emergency response personnel come together for emergency drills to test the readiness of all their staff and ours, and to discover what practices could be improved to keep the public safe.
We also have an entire section devoted to safety at Union Gas.
