07 Aug It’s Not Too Early to ‘Dig In’ to the 811 Campaign Tool Kit
This fast approaching one-day event, you guessed it, is on 8/11/2017 which celebrates the 10th anniversary of the FCC designated number.
Anyone, this means homeowners (for fencing or decks) as well as pipeline construction contractors must call 811 to have underground utilities marked before embarking on digging projects. This can prevent unfortunate mishaps such as cutting your neighbor’s cable, or more serious accidents like gas line explosions.
The 811 Tool Kit is loaded with free social media goodies as well as tips for corporate safety events and informative videos in English and Spanish. Also available are fact sheets and infographics with statistics like “every 6 minutes an underground utility line is damaged because someone decided to dig without first calling 811”.
So gear up your safety department and get ready for 8/11/2017. When it comes to underground utility and pipeline construction, ‘know what’s below’ and make the 811 Tool Kit your place to go.
