For the 13th consecutive year, Dig Safely New York, Inc. will again be hosting the Excavator Safety Seminars. These are FREE premier underground prevention training sessions. We at Dig Safely New York, Inc. remain committed to offering impactful, compelling, educational sessions that can bring you new insights on how to approach safety related to underground facilities.

This year, to facilitate training for those that need to comply with the amendment to 16 NYCRR Part 753, effective Saturday, May 4, 2019, the 2019 Excavator Safety Seminars will accommodate 90% of the Certified Excavator Training requirements. The program will be altered only slightly to accommodate for the curriculum, but still suffices as essential training even if you are not impacted by the law.
The amended law provides that any local government or operator that contracts for excavation, as well as their hired contractors, must ensure that the excavator has completed an approved training and education program. Dig Safely New York, Inc.’s Certified Excavator Program in Safe Digging Best Practices is an approved training course which an impacted excavator can take to comply with the amendment to the law.
