Who’s this for?

For companies who disturb the ground in any way – this workshop is important. We all want to stop hits on underground infrastructure and keep you, the public and the environment safe.  Co-sponsored by BC One Call, BC Common Ground Alliance, BC Municipal Safety Association and companies in Industry, this workshop is a valuable tool for any company that is digging and will provide answers to what’s underground, what happens if you hit a line, legal ramifications, the “Call Before You Dig” process, what Locating is and techniques for safe excavation, among other topics.

Topics Covered:

  • Introduction – Damages, consequences and best practices
  • BC Common Ground Alliance

There are critical infrastructures underground that are vital to healthy communities and business continuity, but can be dangerous to public safety and worker safety if struck.  This workshop may save you money and we may never know how many lives it may help save.
