Recently, members of the Industrial Training Services team traveled to sunny Orlando to attend the AGA Operations Conference & Biennial Exhibition. Jason Garland, Bonnie Clymer, and Chris Taylor met with many industry clients and friends at their exhibitor booth space.
It was a great opportunity to meet with new companies who were interested in learning more about us and our pipeline industry solutions. It was also great to hear feedback from companies to find out what kind of training is needed the most, so that we can address those needs nationwide.
The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) issued a Final Rule to revise its regulations and increase the maximum civil penalty amount for violations of Federal pipeline safety law.
The maximum civil penalty for a single violation is now $209,002 for each day the violation continues, or $2,090,022 for a related series of violations of Federal pipeline safety laws.
Additionally, PHMSA may impose civil monetary penalties not to exceed $1,214 for a violation concerning employee protections or $76,352 for a violation concerning Liquefied Natural Gas operations.
