OneVision focuses on utilizing our Damage Prevention Vehicle to educate and identify high-risk excavation activity:
Engage third-party excavators to positively influence their practices and prevent damages to the utility.
Identify any excavator who exhibits at-risk behavior or any excavation taking place with no visible locate marks.
Review and assess locate requests with excavators making sure the start date is confirmed and the request accurately covers the area.
When you dial 811, you will automatically be connected to a representative from your state’s 811 center who will ask you simple questions about the location and details of your digging project. If you make your request online, you will enter the same information into a form. Either way, you will receive a ticket number and instructions for how much time utilities have to respond to your request, as well as how to confirm that all utilities have responded before you can safely dig.
811 is the national number designated by the Federal Communications Commission to help protect do-it-yourselfers, landscapers and contractors from unintentionally hitting underground utility lines while working on digging projects – large and small.
