1 We have restated the values for our 2014 and 2015 number and volume of liquids spills such that they align with our definition for reportable Incidents. Please see Enbridge’s 2016 CSR & Sustainability report for more information

We're also very aware that as a North American leader in energy infrastructure systems that deliver oil, natural gas and renewable energy, we are uniquely positioned to help bridge the transition to a lower-carbon future.

Energy systems are changing and so are we. But one thing won’t change. We will keep fueling people’s quality of life, because life takes energy.


Occupational Health and Safety

We are committed to ensuring that everyone returns home safely at the end of the day, and that our assets are operated safely. Our commitment is based on caring for our employees, contractors, customers, communities and the environment.

Fatal Incidents and Recordable and Lost Days Injury Rates

We strive to be leaders in occupational health and safety. While our recordable injuries and lost-days injuries in 2016 were the lowest they have been since we began tracking them, tragically two members of our team-contractors working on projects on our behalf-were fatally injured on the job in separate incidents.
