I worked at Kinder Morgan full-time (more than a year)
Unfortunately, I cannot think of one Pro.
Sr. Management wants low injury rates, but has not idea what it takes. Rather than develop solid programs and a cooperative culture, the COO has implemented a culture of fear and discipline around safety. Employees and management fear reporting….now you have your low numbers. Unfortunately, the low numbers are gained via unethical methods. Regional Manages lie to try to get information and influence. Everything is done on a shoe string budget, therefore improvement is nearly impossible.
Advice to Management
Do some research on what it takes to create a positive safety and work culture. Ensure top leadership sets the right business tone. Get the COO out. After leaving, I met multiple people in the safety field who knew about KM and knew to stay away. KM is gaining a very negative image
