Public Safety and Awareness

“Safety is a core value at TransCanada where we make safety — for ourselves, each other, our contractors and for members of our communities — an integral part of the way we work. Our Public Awareness Program educates our stakeholders about living and working safely near our pipelines. If you care about people, if you care about your children, your neighbours and your colleagues, safety always has to be one of the most important aspects of your day-to-day functions and top of consciousness at all times.”

— Don Wishart, Former Executive Vice President, Operations and Major Projects


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.
