The American Gas Association (AGA) published a white paper, “Skills and Experience for Effectively Designing Natural Gas Systems,” that provides guidance to operators on workforce knowledge, skills and communications. The report details a tiered approach to developing a foundational understanding of natural gas systems, improving knowledge about operator-specific processes and procedures, and building technical knowledge. The report also highlights the importance of pipeline safety management systems to promote safety awareness and cooperation company-wide. Additional information can be found on AGA’s website.
