 5.13 One Call Reference at Site

Practice Statement:

Except in case of an emergency, the excavator at each job site has available a complete description of the dig site, a list of the facility owner members impacted at that dig site as identified by the one call center, and the one call center ticket number.59

Practice Description:

The availability of locate request details on site is useful because excavators can easily access information about the location and extent of work, the valid start time, and the list of operators notified. The documentation also provides an excavator with appropriate information for daily tailgate meetings for crews; provides quick references for excavation equipment operators; and facilitates communications between the excavator and the one call center with respect to that particular locate request, should it become necessary. When multiple crews are working on the same project at separate locations or when different employers have crews working at the same location, each crew has the information.
