All About PHMSA

Every day PHMSA strives to meet the needs of our ultimate customers, the American public, to ensure your communities remain safe, livable, and free from transportation incidents involving hazardous products.  Overseeing close to 1 million daily shipments of hazardous materials and 2.3 million miles of the nation’s pipeline network is a huge task.  To get the job done, we rely on our external partners to work with us in promoting and supporting safe practices through resource utilization, training and awareness, new technology investments and other ways to help pipeline operators and hazardous materials transporters assure safety. 

Public Partners in Safety
You too are our partners in safety. The eyes, ears, and vigilance of the public are one of PHMSA's most valuable resources to ensure regulatory compliance.
