How Accurate & Harmonised Product Data Streamlines Global Industry Operations & Builds Consumer Trust

And for consumers, this lack of clarity can lead to a reduced or total lack of trust.

Enbridge Innovation in Action: Safety Highlights

At Enbridge, the safety mindset is so core to who we are that we sometimes have difficulty appreciating how far safety tools and practices have come. Still, we strive for ever greater safety with the firm belief that all incidents are preventable.

It’s about building a system where hazards are removed (technology replacing at-risk personnel) and where safety-focused behaviors, tools and practices are so easily performed that the safe practice becomes the most natural practice.
