Locating Underground Utilities
In the Fall 2008 edition of Construction Safety Magazine, is an article on utility locates.
The most interesting part was on fines and penalties related to violations of the Construction Regulation:
“an individual can receive a maximum fine of $25,000, a sentence of up to 12 months in prison, or both. A corporation can receive a maximum fine of $500,000”
This of course does not include the charges that the TSSA can lay.
There may be other articles in the magazine that are of interest to our clients. The article is on the second page of the document located here
For more information on utility locate issues as they relate to environmental and geotechnical drilling projects, please see other posts in this section and the locate tab in this website.
