Natural Gas Pipeline Safety:
Keeping our communities safe and informed and what you need to know!
PSE&G 811 Know what’s below. Call before you dig.
Our Commitment to Safety:
Safety is the natural gas industry’s top priority. Nationwide, more than 2 million miles of pipelines and mains deliver natural gas safety, reliably and efficiently every day for use by residential, commercial and industrial customers. The industry spends more than $6 billion each year to maintain the gas system’s excellent safety record. We will continue to invest in programs that allow for the safe and secure delivery of natural gas and to work closely with industry and government on a variety of important measures, including:
*Coordination with local One Call Centers
*Visual inspection programs
*Design and construction techniques
*System maintenance, replacement and upgrades
*Industry safety practices and government oversight
*Pipeline markers and facility mapping
*Public education programs
We also work with emergency responders, state and local agencies to prevent and prepare for emergencies through training and periodic drills. Emergency plans and procedures are periodically updated and made available to federal and state authorities.
