Workers can be electrocuted or seriously injured when earthmoving equipment touches underground electrical cables. This document outlines how to reduce or eliminate these risks by:

  • contacting Dial Before You Dig at least 2 business days before starting work near underground electrical cables
  • having current site drawings showing the location of cables and services
  • marking the route of cables and using warning signs
  • making sure the earthworks do not weaken the soil and potentially damage cables
