How we keep the gas system safe
Safety is our top priority when it comes to designing, constructing, operating and maintaining our natural gas system. We monitor the system every day of the year, 24 hours a day.
Gas system inspections
We frequently patrol, survey and inspect every foot of our gas mains and services – all the way up to your gas meter – with sensitive instruments. These inspections meet or exceed all regulatory requirements. Neighborhood gas system inspections are conducted by PSE employees and by Hydromax USA.
We ensure our employees or contractors are easy to identify by:
- PSE identification badges
- Clothing clearly labeled with the PSE Logo
- Business cards with contact information
- Vehicles marked with a PSE logo or dual PSE logo and contractor logo
PSE engineers and construction crews adhere to strict federal and state safety requirements governing pipeline design, materials and construction.
Training and public education
We regularly train employees, contractors and emergency first responders so they are prepared to respond in the unlikely event of a natural gas emergency. We also educate customers and the general public about the importance of safety around natural gas.
