Pipelines

Pipelines are the safest form of oil transportation that exists. During the 10-year period between 2002 and 2011, oil pipelines in Canada operated with a 99.9994 per cent safety record.

There are more than 96,000 kilometres of transmission pipelines in Canada and about 480,000 kilometres in the U.S. Workers constructing and operating these pipelines deal with various hazards daily. Pain or injury from physical overexertion, working in extreme temperatures, working at heights and/or confined spaces, operating motor vehicles, the use of heavy equipment and machinery all present safety hazards.

Pre-job Hazard Assessments, Field Level Risk Assessments, relevant and specific Safe Work Practices and Procedures, etc. and lastly, personal protective equipment, are a few of the legislative requirements every company must have in place to help lower the risk of injury. A workforce that is trained in the proper identification of hazards and how to implement controls, will be more engaged and aware of their changing surroundings, which will ultimately contribute to lower injury rates.
