18:49 EDTPCGCalifornia Utilities Commission investigates PG&E safety practices
The California Public Utilities Commission began a formal investigation Thursday into whether Pacific Gas and Electric has corporate governance, clearly documented organizational goals and objectives, and work procedures that "prioritize and improve safety." CPUC President Michael Picker commented, "A public utility's track record of safely operating its system is dependent on more than messages and slogans. An effective safety culture is shaped by... most of all, the accountability set by the top leadership." The CPUC will evaluate PG&E's organizational culture, governance, policies, practices, and accountability metrics in relation to its record of operations, including its record of safety incidents. The CPUC will analyze the methods used by PG&E's board of directors and executive leadership to hold themselves and management accountable for their decisions and actions, including executive compensation policies. "PG&E has invested in safety improvements, added new board members with safety experience, and reorganized to prioritize gas operations safety. But accidents and events affecting the safety of the general public, its customers, and others continue to occur on PG&E's system, prompting the CPUC to take a deeper look." The CPUC's safety and enforcement division will retain the services of an independent expert consultant with experience in auditing corporate governance and accountability, not to exceed $2M. PG&E will reimburse the CPUC for the consultant services, said the Commission. Reference Link
