The safe operation of our assets is a top priority. Safety is at the core of our value system. We believe that safety breeds reliability and are committed to operating reliably to protect our people, the environment and our communities.
Enterprise’s approach to corporate responsibility is governed by our strong values. Enterprise is committed to the health and safety of our employees, contractors, customers and the public by conducting our business in a safe and responsible manner.
We promote a culture in which all personnel share the same commitment to health and safety, and recognize the importance of mitigating risks. Acting upon our commitment to safety, we engage all levels of employees and management, our Board of Directors, our contractors, and various external entities and organizations. All of our personnel are expected to adopt, embrace, promote and follow these basic principles:
No task is so important that it be performed at the risk of safety
Everyone takes personal responsibility for working safely every day
Employees have the obligation to stop work they consider unsafe, regardless of who is performing the task
Cardinal Rules, safety policies, procedures and practices are critical to a safe work environment and should be followed at all times
All safety-related incidents and near misses are learning opportunities and must be reported
Safe operations are an expectation of our neighbors, fellow workers, contractors, unit holders, regulators and other stakeholders
Managing Safe & Reliable Operations
We recognize that no task is so important that it be performed at the risk of health and safety. At Enterprise, we strive to achieve a goal of zero incidents and injuries. We pursue “GoalZERO” by managing health and safety risks, promoting safety awareness through training and subsequent competency assessments, communicating our commitment to stakeholders, measuring and auditing our safety performance and through intervention. Achieving GoalZERO means no harm to people, no lost work time and no incidents.
We believe active, visible, and engaged support from leaders throughout our organization is critical to ensuring the success of our safety-related initiatives and training. The Safety Leadership Council provides executive level oversight of our Environmental, Health and Safety programs. In addition to the Safety Leadership Council, we have Health & Safety committees and teams across the company. This includes our Safety Management Advisory Team and Area Safety Committees that offer focused leadership and oversight of our safety performance and strategies across our assets and operating regions.
