BACKHOE HITS NATURAL GAS PIPELINE
This includes all tent installations, such as:
– City Property
– Ground Breaking for construction projects
Pennsylvania State Law
Law requires contractors and tent installers to contact the PA One Call System to locate all underground utilities prior to installation of tents where below-surface anchoring is used.
WHO MAKES THE CALL!
The tent company scheduling the installation must make the call to request public utility marking at least 3 business days prior to the installation. PA One Call provides this service coordination on behalf of all utilities so the customer will not have to guess what utilities exist on their site. When requesting the service, we provide a general description of the area of the property where the tent will be is located. The markings are usually done with spray paint on the grass, black top, or concrete surface.
The customer is required to arrange ground markings of all private utilities underground at the site where the tent is to be installed. The tent rental company can not be held responsible for accidentally damaging an private underground utility when its location is not physically marked.
Markings should include private utilities such as:
* sprinkler and water lines
* electrical and communication lines
* sewer and storm water drain lines
* any other underground utilities particular to the property
Pennsylvania Safety Days Training
Every year, PA One Call holds Safety Day events across the state to help increase the public and contractor awareness of different products and services that are available to promote safe operations. The recent event included vendors of specialized digging products, workplace safety presentations by OSHA, hands on displays showing cause and effect surrounding underground activities. Event Central has provided tenting to support many of these Central PA events.
