Ground Disturbance Compliance Auditing Service:

Let us help with your Ground Disturbance management or governance. Industry recognizes that all stakeholders in the damage prevention process should have a governance process in place to offer guidance when conducting ground disturbance activities. Whether you are a facility operator installing buried facilities or performing ground disturbance for maintenance or repairs, a mechanical contractor working on behalf of a buried facility operator or any stakeholder involved in the process.

Experience has led us to develop many tools helpful in improving ground disturbance performance. At 3-D we offer many services that will improve ground disturbance performance including although not limited to the following:

  • Conduct audits of ground disturbance contractors, line locators, GD supervisors and activities
  • Evaluation of your current ground disturbance governance process (code of practice, safe work practice or standard)
  • Conduct compliance assessment based on current governance and implementation
  • Comparison analysis of current activities and process with industry and regulatory standards
