Watching Out for Ourselves and Others

Sending Devon employees and contractors home safely to their friends and family after work each day is vital to our success. Part of our mission is to create an atmosphere of optimism, teamwork, creativity and resourcefulness, and that’s only possible if our workforce is safe.

Devon also is committed to a healthy workplace culture, so we offer employees a variety of wellness programs and amenities to address their physical, mental and financial well-being. We’ve seen a positive shift in our overall workplace health culture since stepping up these efforts almost 10 years ago, and we’re proud to play a role in the well-being of our employees and their families.

benefits and wellness manager

In her career as a corporate wellness expert, Colleen has seen her field expand to address total well-being, including nutrition, financial health and stress management. More than ever, co-workers’ lives are full and busy. “My passion is to create programs and look for ways to help them plug into wellness where it fits best for them and improves their overall well-being.”

Health and safety performance management resources

Devon maintains safety protocols and provides comprehensive orientation and training to employees and contractors. We have an Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Committee, chartered in 2017, to help Devon senior leaders set strategy on safety performance, monitor safety issues and address stakeholder concerns.

We expect our employees and contractors to comply with safety rules and regulations and actively participate in efforts to improve safety. Our workforce is accountable for immediately reporting incidents and near-miss events, stopping at-risk work, working in a safe manner and informing visitors of emergency alarms and evacuation plans.

Pipeline Safety

Pipelines are essential for Devon to deliver oil and natural gas into the marketplace. To ensure our pipelines are in excellent condition, we test and maintain them using cleaning devices, diagnostic tools and corrosion control procedures. For more information on Devon’s pipeline maintenance program, you may email us at

We want people to be aware of our pipelines and where they are located. We ask for help in preventing accidental damage to pipelines, and encourage immediate reporting of any suspicious persons or activities near a pipeline. Call your local law enforcement authorities by dialing 911.

Devon Energy Corporation subsidiaries that operate pipelines include:

Devon Energy Production Company, L.P. 
Devon Gas Services, L.P. 
Southwestern Gas Pipeline, L.L.C.
