Osmose Utilities Services is pleased to announce that it has renewed its certification for the 2020 Gold Shovel Standard Certification*, a first-of-its kind excavation safety program designed to reduce dig-ins and protect the underground gas and electric system. This achievement is a widely-recognized indication of increased safety awareness and a commitment to continuous damage prevention improvement.

Excavators within Gold Shovel Standard rely on Gold Shovel Standard technology to measure safety and efficacy and are able to present hard data to support their reputation. Safe excavation prevents injuries, property damage, inconvenient outages, project delays, and high costs.
