Ground Disturbance Training is required for anyone who excavates or disturbs ground deeper than 12”. However, even disturbing the top inch can be classified as a disturbance.
Ground Disturbance training is for workers and supervisors completing and overseeing excavation work. They take training to ensure that they don't unknowingly disturb the ground.
Our training course is offered every week and takes 8 hours. When completed, you receive a certification card that is valid for three years.
The majority of the time where a line strike occurs, the workers involved in the incident did not understand their responsibilities.
The cost of an underground facility hit can be astronomical. Hitting gas lines and electrical lines can seriously injure or even kill workers. Damaging a fiber optic cable can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars per day. A line strike can seriously damage a company's reputation, or even cause bankruptcy.
The good news, is that workers who understand their responsibilities almost never cause line strikes.
Our instructors are experienced professionals on the topic of ground disturbance. They are veterans of the industrial and oil and gas sector.
