April 1 marks the official start of Dig Safe Month. The Ontario Regional Common Ground Alliance (ORCGA) and its stakeholders have designated April as the annual Dig Safe Month in Ontario.
This month is dedicated to improving safety and reducing damages to underground facilities by raising awareness of safe digging practices through local events across the province. Any time you plan to dig on or near your property, contact Ontario One Call first. Even if you’re just digging with a shovel, be sure to get a free locate in advance. Some underground cables or lines are just below the surface. You can contact Ontario One call l 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, online or by calling 1-800-400-2255.
Through unified efforts, the industry continues to work towards our goal of ZERO damages. We are working together for a safer Ontario. Please remember:
- CALL BEFORE YOU DIG
- WAIT FOR LOCATES
- RESPECT THE MARKS
- DIG WITH CARE
Damage prevention is a shared responsibility; learn more from our website and call before you dig!
