Every day, natural gas pipelines safely carry one of the world’s cleanest, most efficient and reliable fuels to businesses and homes across borders. To maintain a stable level of safety amongst both work and community personnel, pipeline owners and operators must take preventative measures to prevent an on-site pipeline emergency.
Although a natural gas incident such as a natural gas leak or intense accident is uncommon, their signs should be well-known for all-around safety. To properly prevent a pipeline emergency, here are a few tips:
Tip #1: A common sign of a pipeline leaks might emit a rotten-egg-like odor of natural gas.
Tip #2: Near a gas line, watch for bubbling water, blowing dirt, dead plants or listen for a hissing sound.
Tip #3: Do not smoke, light a match, use a cell phone, flashlight, turn on or of any lights or appliances or operate any kind of equipment that could create a spark.
Tip #4: Do not take the time to look for a leak or try to stop it without a professional’s assistance.
