Dig Safely and Prevent Utility Dig-InsDig Safely HomeNext >

 

Utility contacts can be costly—and deadly. Underground utility contacts cost utility owners and contractors millions of dollars in repair and service disruption costs every year. Not only that, workers who contact buried utilities put themselves and the public at risk of injury or death. It's your responsibility to dig safely to protect yourself, your crew, and the public.
