Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Federal and state pipeline safety laws and their implementing regulations have come a long way since the first federal law was enacted to regulate oil and gas pipeline safety in 1968. However, most federal and state pipeline safety regulations still only constitute minimum standards for construction, maintenance, leak monitoring, reporting, and enforcement. As a result, people are continuing to die, be injured, and be displaced as a result of preventable pipeline failures and disruptions. There have been an average of over 20 significant pipeline failures per month in the United States since 2016 and the trend data actually show an increase in significant incidents, primarily from hazardous liquids pipelines. Pipeline Safety Coalition's multi-pronged mission to disseminate information, educate, and develop collaborative partnerships with all pipeline safety stakeholders and rights-holders aims to reverse this trend towards zero pipeline failures.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Developing a National Pipeline Survivor Support System (NP3S)

Create a multifaceted National Pipeline Survivor Support System Advisory Committee designed to incorporate
public utilities, city officials, public agencies, first responders, and survivors to develop a new pipeline safety advocacy coalition for pipeline safety education and on-going mutual aid and resource sharing specific to hazardous liquids and gas pipeline emergencies.

Population(s) Served

Promote proactive, consistent communication and messaging focused on pipeline safety education that enhances the numbers of informed communities who play a vital role in safety and reliability of pipeline operations by building on established and locally identified community needs.

  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.

Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
