Damages can be dangerous and costly
If you’re an owner, maintaining intact underground infrastructure is often critical to your operations. A cut data line or ruptured gas pipe could mean lengthy service interruptions, further damage through explosions and personal injury. Therefore it’s in your self-interest to register.
With registration, you get:
- Improved digging safety with less damage events
- Increased public safety
- Increased worker safety
- Increased awareness of digging activity in your jurisdiction
- Reduction in nonessential locates
It’s also the Law
In 2012, the Ontario legislature passed Bill 8 which obligates owners of underground infrastructure to register with ON1Call.
If you have not yet registered, we encourage you to review Bill 8 with your legal and risk department and then begin the registration process.
