“Call before your dig” is only a small portion of what a worker needs to know in Ground Disturbance training. At Safety Coordination Services, we ensure that your workers engaged in excavations, earth-moving, or the maintenance of underground facilities understand the unique dangers that come with ground disturbance. Whether working by hand, or hydrovac, or powered earth-mover, every operator and supervisor on site must understand the hazards of disturbing underground facilities and know what to do to prevent accidents.
