On June 6, 2013 TransCanada Corporation officially released our 2013 Corporate Social Responsibility Report. The 2013 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report was released during Canadian Environment Week as a testament to our commitment to operating in an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable manner, while recognizing the interests of our stakeholders.

Our 2013 CSR Report is focused on 10 areas of key importance to both us and to our stakeholders. These areas of key importance were identified using TransCanada’s materiality process and our report highlights our successes and challenges in these areas. Check our TransCanada 2013 CSR Report campaign for FMRs on each of our 10 material areas of focus.

Today we are highlighting Health and Safety

TransCanada takes a holistic approach to health and safety, with multiple overlapping programs that address the workplace and home, the individual and family.

We allow no compromise in the welfare of employees and contractors, making health and safety integral to planning and execution, a priority in the field, in our offices and in the boardroom.

We're proud of our safety record but won't be satisfied with anything less than a zero-incident workplace.

We appreciate that achieving this goal demands a robust safety culture including continuously adapting how we think and act, on and off the job.

As required by regulations and industry best practices, TransCanada's Health, Safety and Environment Management System (HSE MS) makes safety training and certification, along with regular refreshers and updates, part of the job. This includes training in Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System first aid/CPR, fire and driver training, and other training and certifications demanded by specific jobs.

 Our efforts are making a difference as shown through the metrics noted below.
