Control the Pressure is the IBEW 1245 peer-to-peer safety initiative for members who work in the natural gas trades.
As its name infers, this initiative seeks to create a safety culture that motivates IBEW gas workers to promote safety through mutual support and protection on the job. Sometimes the pressures of the job, or simple inattention, may lead to cutting corners or creating a hazardous working condition. It is the responsibility of every member who spots such a condition to control the pressure” by stopping the work until the hazard is addressed.
Members can consult with a Control the Pressure Safety Steward to help resolve safety concerns that arise. If the Safety Steward is not able to resolve the issue, it can be referred to the Control the Pressure Advisory Committee.
If you want more information about the Control the Pressure program, or to volunteer to be a Safety Steward, please contact Business Representative Casey Kelley email@example.com or 775-857-9750.
