Gas Networks: When it comes to safety, prevention is the best cure
Gas networks use location-based solutions for instant, informed decision-making and data-sharing at all levels. This results in the ability to respond flexibly to the changing environment and improve operational performance at the same time.
When it comes to safety, prevention is the best cure
In gas distribution, safety is the number one priority. Whether you are scheduling mains replacement or routine inspections and maintenance, an understanding of the relationship between location and risk is crucial.
Effective use of GIS extends far beyond knowing the location of an asset. It provides the safety-critical spatial context of assets, environment and resources on which to plan for prevention and response. GIS provides accurate and information rich mapping to field crews for use within a challenging environment.
The benefits of GIS
- Prioritise mains replacement – identify assets for replacement plan based on the minimum risk
- Report compliance accurately – provide robust information for regulatory and health and safety audits
- Assess risk and integrity – prevent incidents before they occur with predictive modelling
- Stop ‘near enough’ - precise location information for fewer incidents, faster responses and superior support
And that means better protection for public, employees and property.
