Oil and gas pipeline companies are committed to protecting people, property, and the environment. Most of these companies have their own unique procedures and programs they follow to make sure safety is paramount.
Using the latest technology, security, and industry practices, natural gas pipelines are monitored to maintain service and safety. Processes like the following are observed on all major projects:
- Design and construction planning with local agencies
- Monitoring 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
- Integrity management programs
- Inspection by air and foot patrol
- Training for emergency responders and excavators
- Public awareness and damage prevention programs
- Coordination and communication with police and fire officials
At Submar, nothing is more important than safety. Our philosophy is that if it cannot be done safely, it should not be done at all.
All Submar products are made with high-quality materials, and we perform safety testing on our leasable installation equipment every six months. Submar is proud to provide quality control and certified safety-testing documentation in support of our commitment to safety and quality.
Submar’s safety philosophy extends to our employees, who undergo extensive training. Our commitment to safety is ongoing and based on these general principles:
Our crews are fully qualified to work on any site, which ensures the best possible results for our clients. We are proud to be Gold Shovel Standard (GSS) Certified. The Gold Shovel Standard is a first-of-its kind excavation safety program designed to reduce dig-ins and protect the underground gas and electric system. With safety as its highest priority, the Gold Shovel Standard Certification process was developed to ensure that hired contractors are vetted annually and adhere to the safest excavation standards.
We also use American Safety and Health Institute (ASHI) training programs that are recognized, accepted and approved by, or meet the requirements of nearly 2,400 state regulatory agencies, occupational licensing boards, national associations, commissions, and councils in more than 120 occupations and professions.
