Construction activity in Saskatchewan has remained at historically high levels, even during the COVID-19 pandemic. There were 151,282 requests for line locates in 2020, a close to seven per cent increase from the previous year, and about 700 contacts with underground facilities.
The Saskatchewan Common Ground Alliance (SCGA) and its 95 members – which include our province’s pipeline and utility companies – continue to advocate for Click Before You Dig and Dig Safe Best Practices.
We want to be sure those frontline workers, safety managers, emergency personnel and the general public are aware of the importance of working safely around underground and overhead infrastructure.
At the SCGA we often hear, “What can I share at a safety meeting?” or, “What is a good topic to discuss during our tailgate meetings?”
The SCGA has a number of videos prepared for anyone’s use. Why not check out the SCGA YouTube page and choose a playlist? You’ll find great content for any safety-related meetings.
