A lasting symbol of our commitment to safety
The Enbridge Ring: A constant reminder of our duties and responsibilities
It is lasting, strong, and solid, like the company values it represents.
It is also a sobering reminder of our past missteps, and a symbol of the journey we’re taking toward our goal of 100 per cent safety.
It’s the Enbridge Ring – and since its introduction in 2011, it’s been presented to every new permanent employee across our North American enterprise, as it will be in perpetuity. Our primary social responsibility at Enbridge is connecting North Americans to the energy they need for their quality of life – and we’re committed to doing it safely and reliably.
The Enbridge Ring is a constant reminder – a reminder of our duty to earn the trust and protect the safety of all those who count on Enbridge to deliver energy reliably and responsibly.
We developed the Enbridge Ring in late 2010 and early 2011 with the help of Calgary artist and jeweler Jeff DeBoer.
Every single employee ring contains steel from Line 6B, the Enbridge pipeline at the center of the Marshall, Michigan release of July 2010. The steel has been cleaned, sandblasted, heated, rolled and shaped to match the curve of the rings.
And while these rings contain Line 6B steel, they memorialize more than the Marshall incident, they also mark our firm commitment to safety and the protection of the public and the environment.
The design of the Enbridge Ring, with a working hinge and solid brass dial and bolt, represents the active role that every one of our employees plays in helping to transport, distribute, and generate energy safely and reliably.
Since July 2011, a working sculpture of the Enbridge Ring, weighing about 100 pounds and measuring 18 inches in diameter, has been installed in the main lobby of Enbridge’s head office in Calgary.
Ultimately, the Enbridge Ring is symbolic of our personal commitment to safety and integrity – every day – in word, thought and deed.
