April 20 - 26, 2020
Established in 2014 by Infrastructure Resources and endorsed by Nulca, LSAW addresses the need to keep our locators safe on the job. Take the opportunity during this week to acknowledge the locators you work with and let them know how much you appreciate the difficult, challenging, and sometimes dangerous work they do protecting our underground utilities. Locator Safety Awareness Week takes place in the last full week of April.
