Abstract: Statistical methods were recently utilized in conducting a technical audit of safety-related operations of a major gas utility. The primary objectives of this audit were: 1. To study the operations and practices associated with the design, installation, protection, maintenance, surveillance and repair of a gas distribution pipeline system. 2. To evaluate the adequacy of these operations with respect to compliance with applicable federal and local regulations. 3. To recommend changes that might improve the companys safety record and would allow continued self-audit of safety performance in the future.
