The Saskatchewan Common Ground Alliance held its annual Contractor Safety Breakfast in Yorkton this (Wed) morning.
Executive Director Sally Cain says it’s the perfect time of year for it.
“With April being dig safe month, and contractors starting to put the shovels into the ground, it’s a good time to keep it top of mind for them and refresh them on the things that they need to know before they start digging,” said Cain. “It’s why we give out that little card with the 5 steps to safer digging.”
Cain says it’s also important to look up when you’re working near overhead power lines.
