Spring is here (finally!); the snow is melting and the birds are back – including our Blue Jays- and so are we.  After a bit of a winter blog hiatus, we are re-energized and excited to announce..

Dig Safe Month!

The Ontario Regional Common Ground Alliance (ORCGA) and its members have designated April as Dig Safe Month in Ontario. This month is dedicated to raising awareness of safe digging practices across the province to improve safety and reduce damages to underground plant.

Ensuring the safety of those who work or live in the vicinity of underground facilities and protecting vital services is everyone’s responsibility. The ORCGA and its members are encouraging homeowners and contractors to call for locates before they dig to prevent injuries, property damage and inconvenient outages.  Source:  Digsafe.ca

Super Sucker helped spread the message through our employees, by holding our own internal Dig Safe event in conjunction with our monthly employee breakfast safety meeting.

Jeff Hitchcock from Ontario One Call was our guest speaker and we drew for a bunch of excellent prizes…our employees even won sets of tickets to Blue Jays – Yankees on Opening weekend!
