EnLink’s emergency preparedness goes well beyond mandated regulations. In the unlikely event of an emergency, we are prepared to activate our comprehensive emergency response plan and work closely with local responders to keep the public and our employees safe. We believe the best emergency response system begins with prevention and is amplified by continuous monitoring and preparation.
Drills, Exercises, and Readiness
EnLink maintains the experience, skills, and resources necessary to appropriately respond to an emergency situation, should one arise. This level of preparedness helps ensure the protection of our workforce and the communities in which we operate. We regularly engage and partner with local firehouses, emergency management officials, law enforcement officers, public officials, and planning agencies to review crisis response procedures and to conduct physical and tabletop drills with us to ensure finely honed response planning. EnLink also communicates regularly with local first responders through routine in-person meetings, facility tours, and informational mailers.
In 2020, our employees received over 13,000 hours of safety and emergency response training. We proactively create and maintain emergency response plans for our operations sites and conducted more than 75 safety drills in 2020 to help ensure employees are prepared to respond to any emergency situation.
While the best emergency response system begins with prevention, we recognize the opportunity to learn from any incident. Incidents and “near misses” are screened through EnLink’s incident investigation process which includes contributions from multiple stakeholders across disciplines to determine causes and hazards, as well as the implementation of corrective and preventive actions. EnLink’s incident investigation process is an essential way in which we empower our employees, reduce risk, and improve our processes.
