Episode 25: Locating, The Missing Piece of the Puzzle
This is the 25th and final installment of Planet Underground episodes. Our goal was to show the world the perspective of utility contractors and locators in America. The episode shows why contractors do locating to ensure their safety and efficiency, and we believe there would be less damages if contractors had the same knowledge that locators have about utility systems.
Although we are ending our episode series, Planet Underground will still try and make an impact in the utility construction industry through education. We have developed an online training program with over nine hours of educational video and testing about Locating Instruments, Basic Utility Knowledge, Utility Map Reading, Visual Observation, and Tickets and Maps. The program was designed to teach anyone in the industry, check it out to see yourself at locatorcertification.com.
