If you own or operate an underground line that serves one or more customers or consumers in Pennsylvania, you are required by the UULP Law to be a member of Pennsylvania One Call System, but is that the only reason you should join? Of course, the answer is no. By joining Pennsylvania One Call System, you not only protect your underground lines, but you protect those living or working near those lines.

Becoming a member of Pennsylvania One Call System helps you avoid costly repairs to your underground facilities that were damaged because you did not know excavation work was occurring near your facilities.

Joining Pennsylvania One Call System, receiving notifications of excavation work and marking the location of your underground lines when requested, is the “ounce of prevention” needed to insure the safety of your underground lines.

Damage to underground lines causes problems for everyone involved and can be a threat to life, property, and the environment. These damages can be easily prevented.

If you are not a member of Pennsylvania One Call System, you have no right to recovery if your underground lines are damaged during excavation work under the law.

You are digging near underground lines...

        Was Pennsylvania One Call System notified at least three working days prior to the excavation..?

                  Do the Facility Owners know about this excavation work?

 

If you do not call before you dig you could be risking damage to underground lines or worse.

 

Is the safety of your employees  important to you? If you answer yes to this question, then you must CALL before you Dig, it is the safest thing to do.

Dial 8-1-1 or 1-800-242-1776 not less than three business days nor more than ten business days prior to the start of your excavation work. One simple phone call can help keep your employees safe on the job site.

Pennsylvania One Call System’s facility owner members will receive the information about your job and mark the location of their underground lines at the site. Knowing the location of the underground lines at your job site can give you a sense of security that you are taking one of the steps necessary to keep your employees, your customers, and anyone in the vicinity of the job site safe.

Don’t just call Pennsylvania One Call System because you are required to do so by Law, do it because it is the right thing to do for everyone involved. Remember to mark your proposed excavation area in white.

 

On the job site, would you operate a piece of machinery you knew to be faulty, that could malfunction at any moment? Would you let your employee use equipment with frayed wires? We are sure the answer is no, so why would you let them dig at a worksite where the underground lines are not marked? Make safety a priority and look for the following colors at the jobsite before you dig. Please follow trench safety rules.
