The primary objective of the ORGCA is to raise utility damage prevention awareness and produce practical damage prevention tools and services for use in the field, most notably, the CCGA Underground Infrastructure Damage Prevention Best Practices 3.0, training such as the Damage Prevention Technician courses, designed to teach students on achieving competence in locating buried utilities and the DIRT Report.
The Reporting and Evaluation Committee, via the Damage Information Reporting Tool database, gathers meaningful data regarding the occurrence of facility events and performs analysis of the root causes of damage to underground infrastructure.
This analysis forms the content of the DIRT Report which identifies the root causes of events, the type of equipment used, when they occurred, and the type of work performed.
The Reporting and Evaluation Committee also recommends what actions industry and stakeholders can do to help reduce future incidents, such as outreach and educational information to reduce Excavation Practices Not Sufficient (lack of careful excavation practices) and No Notification to One Call Centre, both significant causes of damages in Ontario.
