Safety Starts with Education
The propane industry is engaged in ongoing training, education, and awareness-building efforts to promote and advance the safe handling, use, and maintenance of propane and propane-fueled equipment.
Safety Tips: Call Before You Dig
- A federally-mandated national number “Call Before You Dig” (811), was created to help protect you from unintentionally hitting underground utility lines while working on digging projects. People often make risky assumptions about whether or not they should get their utility lines marked before digging due to concerns about project delays, costs and previous calls about other projects. If you hit an underground utility line while digging, you can harm yourself or those around you, disrupt service to an entire neighborhood and potentially be responsible for fines and repair costs. These assumptions can be life-threatening.
- Are you planning on building a deck? Planting a tree? Installing a mailbox? If so, call 811 before you dig and you will be connected to your local call center. Whether you are a homeowner or a professional excavator, your underground utility lines will be marked for FREE when you call 811!
Be sure to check with your State rules and regulations governing digging prior to any excavation.
