APGA Safety Contest

All APGA members are eligible to enter the APGA Safety Contest which determines winners based on the systems' overall incident (lost work time) rates. Public gas systems are divided into six groups based on annual number of man-hours worked, and the winner of each group will be calculated based on total man-hours worked and lost hours due to accident or injury from January 1 to December 31 of the calendar year.

Congratulations to all 35 winners of the 2018 APGA Safety Contest! These gas systems highlight the dedication of APGA members to maintaining the highest safety standards within their system, their communities, and in the natural gas industry. The 35 winning systems include the 25-year award winners, City of Americus Natural Gas Services in Georgia.

Again, we would like to congratulate all of our winners for continuing to achieve the highest safety records in the natural gas industry year after year.
