Safety The products delivered by our companies—electricity and natural gas—are indispensable. They power businesses, light cities and towns, and drive both necessities and conveniences at home. Yet, improperly handled, they can be dangerous. Safety is critical to all that we do. For the general public, it's providing education on how to use energy safely and to recognize and respond to risky situations. For employees, it's delivering training and defining procedures on working safely around live energy.

For us, safety is not just a priority. It's a value that guides our actions. Our company's vision is zero injuries every day.
