Safety is always the number one priority among our members. There’s a great article by Andrew Lu on the Natural Gas Utility and Transmission Industry Occupational Injury and Illness Statistics (I know it’s a mouthful) report in the most recent issue of American Gas Magazine. That report has been produced by the AGA’s Safety & Occupational Health Committee since the 1980’s and features employee safety data for natural gas operators. Data are reported in several areas and sorted by company type (for instance, transmission, local distribution and combination utility) and company size as determined by the number of employees.
This issue of the magazine also contains Dave’s thoughts on the value of natural gas and The Gas Technology Institute and Operations Technology Development report on the technology advances coming our way within the next decade. Check out the digital version of American Gas Magazine.
