According to the Common Ground Alliance’s (CGA) Annual DIRT Report, every 62 seconds there is a line strike somewhere in the United States.
Excavation-related damages took a steady increase from 2018 to 2019, jumping to 532,000 from 509,000 in just one year.
There was a reported $30 billion in damages to utility lines and other underground infrastructure in the United States during 2019 alone.
Since 2000, there have been more than 2,000 injuries and 400 deaths because of insufficient or non-existent ground disturbance policies at construction or other job sites.
Most, if not all, damages and injuries on project sites can be linked back to improper ground disturbance plans and actions. Without an accurate ground disturbance plan, you are not only increasing your chances of costly, unwarranted delays in your project, but you are placing your field personnel at risk.
