About the Excavation Safety Guide

The Excavation Safety Guide is an annual publication offering in-depth articles written by industry experts that outline the excavation process from pre-planning to job completion. The guide is designed to help industry stakeholders avert damages to underground utilities which could potentially cause financial loss, injury or even death.  Over 10 million Custom Excavation Safety Guides have been printed since it’s inception in 2005.

The Excavation Safety Guide is a reference tool 3 out of 4 survey respondents stated they kept and used all year. It is the ideal way to communicate the importance of underground safety to your audience while keeping the safe digging message alive for a year or more. The Guide can be direct mailed to members or distributed at safety meetings and through public awareness channels.

As the underground becomes increasingly crowded, protecting our buried infrastructure becomes more challenging. The Excavation Safety Guide always includes these important industry resources to help navigate through these challenges.
