The Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E), along with Contingency Management Consulting Group and Allen Communication, recently won three awards for the utility’s informative video series “Gas Safety 101.”
These award winning videos were created as part of PG&E’s Public Awareness Plan designed to educate consumers and the public about critical gas safety. The videos explore multiple topics such as what to keep in mind if you live near a pipeline, what to do if you smell gas, tips and concerns for building on your property, and important things to know about carbon monoxide.
“Our journey to become the safest natural gas company in the industry begins with educating our internal and external partners about pipeline safety,” said PG&E Director of Gas Emergency Preparedness Joel Dickson. “Our team has made tremendous strides with developing tools for our customers, contractors and external first responder population.”
PG&E is one of many natural gas utilities fostering a culture of safety within their company and their community. Safety is the top priority for America’s natural gas utilities. AGA and its more than 200 members are committed to the continued safe and reliable operation of the nation’s 2.4 million miles of natural gas pipelines. All employees, as well as contractors and suppliers providing services to AGA members, are expected to place the highest priority on employee, customer and public safety.
AGA applauds PG&E for their creative way of sharing the natural gas industry’s safety messages with consumers and the public. To watch the “Gas Safety 101” video series, visit PG&E’s YouTube page.
