Steamfitters Talk Pipeline Safety

Steamfitters Local 420 is a labor union in southeastern Pennsylvania that is engaged throughout the pipeline timeline from training the workers, to installing the pipeline, to servicing the pipeline once it is “up and running.”

According to Steamfitters Director of Training, Pete Klein, “there is a fear of pipelines and transportation of product through pipelines.” He goes on to explain, “studies have been done on it. Pipelines are the safest means of transportation. There is no one in this country that is better prepared to install that piping and service that piping than Steamfitters Local 420.”
