The Ontario Regional Common Ground Alliance (ORCGA) invites you to join the FREE Geographic Council meetings that take place across the province virtually to promote the message that “damage prevention is a shared responsibility”.
These meetings are to share underground infrastructure damage prevention best practices, exchange ideas and provide a forum to hear about local projects and regional issues.
An introduction about the new legal concept of Dedicated Locator as introduced in the amendments to OUNISA 2012.
Dedicated Locator allows a project of any size to have a single dedicated locator to mark all underground infrastructure (excluding transmissions).
We will talk about the benefits of using Dedicated Locator for excavating projects, the requirements for the members of Ontario One Call, and some of the lessons learnt to date.
