Our Safety Culture
Of all the different aspects of our Culture, none is more important than safety. Protecting public, employee and contractor safety is our number-one responsibility, period. With safety and the needs of our customers in mind, this is a time to innovate and find better ways to operate and new ways to grow. To achieve this requires the flexibility to change. Our industry is changing rapidly. It’s an exciting time to bring your best ideas to our biggest challenges.
As 20,000 Californians who live and work in the communities we serve, the men and women of PG&E are passionate about giving back to the neighborhoods we share with our customers. Together, PG&E employees volunteered more than 75,000 hours last year in a range of charitable efforts across Northern and Central California.
