Next Generation Event - October 23, 2018

On Tuesday, October 23rd, we held our last Next Generation event of 2018! Over 30 key employees attended the event at Trattoria 35 in Bayside. The topic of the night was Operator Qualification. Effective January 1, 2019, everyone in New York City (including LMPs and their technicians) needs to be Gas Operator Qualified if they are physically going to perform certain gas covered work on jurisdictional gas piping (Northeast Gas Association Covered Task 87). This type of requirement is the first of its kind for our industry. Therefore, there are many components and steps that need to be completed in order to meet this requirement. 

In an effort to help the industry better understand what it means to be Operator Qualified, as well as what it takes to become Operator Qualified, we invited Timothy Donohue, our acting OQ Liaison to do a presentation. Tim has been doing a fantastic job in helping with all things Operator Qualification. If you have a question, Tim knows the answer!

This was a great chance for key employees to get a better understanding of the OQ requirement. The night ending with a question and answer forum that served to be extremely beneficial! Thank you to Tim for speaking and thank you to everyone who attended!

Be sure to keep an eye out for next year’s Next Generation events!
