About The Presentation:
The pipeline industry is one of the most regulated industries in Canada and their safety record is 99.999% or near perfect. Yet this is one industry filled with myths and misinterpretations about its safety. Canada’s network of pipelines encompasses more than 840,000 kilometres across the country. These highly sophisticated “energy highways” are the safest, most environmentally responsible, and most efficient way to transport large quantities of natural gas and oil across long distances. If you choose to work in the pipeline industry, nine times out of ten, you will be asked to defend the safety of pipelines by family, friends, or strangers. This session will review common myths about pipelines, so you are ready to answer them.
