Pipeline operators are committed to improving safety performance and reaching a goal of zero pipeline incidents. In doing so, operators of all sizes and segments of the industry including liquid, gas transmission and gas distribution industries are embarking on the journey of Pipeline SMS implementation. In some instances, pipeline operators demonstrate that commitment through letters, and others through pledges to safety management principles. Above all, getting started on the journey is about leadership, a desire to drive organizational improvement and building a culture that seeks to prevent all pipeline incidents.
Recognizing pipeline operators are at different stages of maturity, a flexible road map and suite of tools have been designed to support operators as they launch their efforts and begin the Pipeline SMS Journey. Access tools, fact sheets and other Pipeline SMS resources using the “Learn” page.
