Dig Safe Dial 811

April 2014
Dig Safe Month
Proclamation

The Safety Division is responsible for monitoring and inspecting construction and safety practices for all New Hampshire gas utilities. More than 200 inspections involving compliance with the Natural Gas Pipeline Safety Act were conducted during the biennium. The Division also monitors 13 natural gas inspection units and continues to employ rigorous inspections with a strong emphasis on training and education. The U.S. Department of Transportation, Office of Pipeline Safety, audits the Division’s Safety Program each year and gave the Division high scores on its annual performance evaluation.

Recently, the Commission transferred the responsibility for electric safety to the Safety Division. Whenever there is electrical contact in which a person has received a shock, flash injury or other injury that resulted from contact with the utility’s facilities, an investigation and report is completed.
