YOUNG workers at an energy firm were given an insight into safety during a special event.
Fifteen members of the Young Persons’ Network within Northern Gas Networks (NGN) visited PII Pipeline Solutions in Cramlington, Northumberland. The technical site visit was developed as an opportunity to educate young employees from across NGN’s business about the importance of pipeline safety.
The day started with an overview of pipeline inspection and integrity services, followed by a detailed review of the latest in-line inspection technology developed at the site.
Kevin Johnson, Europe and Africa regional manager, PII, said: “Working with NGN to help educate their staff fits perfectly with our own strategy. We are keen to employ and develop young people through internship and apprenticeship programmes.”
