Safety in numbers

Submitted by sempra_ben on

More than one-tenth of the U.S. population relies on the Sempra companies for energy to power their lives. Our 20,000 employees build and operate electric and natural gas infrastructure with an unwavering focus on safety for our workforce, customers and the communities we serve. Here are eight examples of safety excellence across the Sempra enterprise:

  • 4,091 miles of power lines hardened against wildfires to date by San Diego Gas & Electric.

  • Over 37,000 power poles in SDG&E’s high-fire threat district inspected by drones.

  • 3,000 miles of transmission lines evaluated for vegetation encroachment using Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) technology by Oncor Electric Delivery.

  • Over 160 Super Safe Kids safety shows conducted by Oncor to help Texas kids stay safe around electricity.

  • 89 million hours worked without an occupational injury or illness involving days away from work during construction of Cameron LNG, earning a Perfect Record Award from the National Safety Council.

  • 100% of Sempra Infrastructure’s critical employees trained in emergency management response.

  • 100% of Southern California Gas Company’s approved pipeline construction contractors required to have a formal safety management system program, starting 2023.

  • 237 pipeline safety and awareness presentations made by SoCalGas to the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services and personnel at counties, cities and park and recreation departments in 2021.

As part of our commitment to achieve world-class safety, we aim to train 100% of critical employees in emergency management response, to participate in emergency planning processes in 100% of the communities we serve, and to have zero employee and contractor fatalities each year.
