Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) passed a comprehensive gas safety audit and has been certified to the chemical industry’s RC14001 management system standard. The audit reviewed numerous end-to-end safety processes.

The company is reportedly the first utility to secure the RC14001 certification, which was developed as a standard issued through the American Chemistry Council for process safety; community communications; product safety; and occupational safety, health, environmental and security practices against which it can be evaluated and certified by a third party.

Conducted by DNV GL, the third-party audit included extensive interviews with PG&E employees and field visits to verify process safety standards utilized throughout gas operations.
