April is National Safe Digging Month
Posted on April 27, 2015 by ajohansen
National Safe Digging Month was created to spread awareness and convey the importance of calling 811 before digging, whether you are a homeowner or an Excavator. 811 is a national hotline that was established in 2005 to connect homeowners and Contractors to their state’s One Call Center, which notifies the appropriate utility companies of their intent to dig. Each One Call Center provides online help tools to submit dig information electronically or over the phone.
KorTerra celebrated this national event by spreading the safe digging message internally through a weeklong company event. Our company believes in the importance of educating our employees about safe digging. This event consisted of sending out daily quizzes to employees on topics revolving around safe digging, rewarding top performers with the opportunity to dig for prizes on the last day. Our company also hosted a BBQ to celebrate this event.
