Safety

Safety is one of our top priorities. We know that our success as a company hinges on our ability to provide a safe work environment for our workforce, to protect the public, and to maintain the integrity of our assets. We strive to continuously improve our safety performance through our vision of "Zero is Achievable," which is rooted in our belief that we can achieve zero accidents.

Safety Commitments and Goals

We believe that identifying strategic safety goals each year reinforces our commitment to the well-being of our workforce, improves our safety culture, and helps us work towards our vision of zero accidents.

To stress the critical nature of safe operations and reinforce our philosophy that strong safety performance is an expectation and not a justification for increased incentive compensation, a holistic scorecard including quantitative and qualitative evaluation of incident rates, severity, process improvements, and other safety-related items is maintained outside of our 2020 Bonus Plan. The scorecard serves as a modifier that can reduce plan payout if safety performance is below expectations.

Public Safety and Awareness

Our Public Awareness Program is designed to inform the public and excavators how to recognize and report pipeline incidents. In addition, our public awareness team works with emergency responders to conduct drills and ensure effective coordination in the event of an incident.

Emergency Preparedness

As a responsible member of the communities where we operate, we have robust processes in place to prepare for and appropriately respond to a wide range of emergencies. Our goal is to protect Targa’s workforce and the communities surrounding our operations
