Damage Prevention meetings are held by and for the excavation community each spring. They are focused on safe digging education with content provided by Gopher State One Call, the Minnesota Common Ground Alliance and the Minnesota Office of Pipeline Safety. The goal of these meetings is to inform locators, utility operators and excavators about underground utility safety protocols and best practices, and to ensure that safety continues to be the No. 1 goal across Minnesota’s damage prevention industry.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, all meetings were conducted virtually this year. In addition to virtual discussions, content is still available to view independently for anyone who is interested. Visit the DP meetings page on the Gopher State One Call website to go through the modules at your own pace. There is also a DP meeting guide PDF to follow along with while you watch the videos if you like.
Here are some of the highlights, key takeaways and important announcements from the 2021 Damage Prevention meetings:
