Safety is our priority

Safety is at the core of everything we do, every day. The system we use to deliver gas has an excellent safety record. This record is a direct result of our work maintaining and upgrading our system, our rigorous adherence to safe practices, rules and regulations, and the diligence of our employees in carrying out our commitment to safety on a daily basis.

When it comes to our major projects, safety is embedded at every stage, starting with selecting a route and choosing a construction contractor. Throughout construction, our safety experts regularly visit worksites to ensure safety practices are being followed – looking at everything from potential tripping hazards to safely working in confined spaces to vehicles properly using safety spotters. 

FortisBC will not compromise employee and public safety, and strives for excellence in safety performance.
