In the State of Connecticut, it is the law to contact CBYD prior to any excavation involving mechanized or powered equipment. The laws and regulations regarding excavation are in place to protect utility assets, but most importantly to protect the people excavating. Connecticut’s “Call Before You Dig” (CBYD) program is effective, FREE and the law. Be responsible and contact CBYD for the safety of the community, the safety of the local utilities and your own safety!
The following is a list of private locating companies. The companies listed here are not agents, employees or contractors of CBYD. CBYD provides this list only as a courtesy and does not warrant the accuracy or completeness of this list or any other aspect of these contractors’ services.
CBYD Toolbox Talks are designed as quick training tools for use by excavator’s safety or management personnel to have brief but meaningful discussions about safe excavation practices.
These talks are based on real incidents that have occurred in Connecticut or significant incidents elsewhere in the country.
