Global Ground Disturbance Level I and II

Ground Disturbance - Level I

This two-hour program is designed to ensure personnel are aware of hazards and the necessary items required to ensure safety. Participants are always under the direct guidance of a Level II certified Ground Disturbance Supervisor who has Level II Certification. This program was designed to meet the regulatory requirements for companies with a massive, fully supervised labour base. Emphasis is placed on recognizing hazards, and knowing when to stop work and inform the supervisor for further assessment. Participants are able to explain what a ground disturbance is, when and why common hits occur, define what a Code of Practice is and why there is the need for one. Other topics include undertaking a ground disturbance, and distances involved when searching for an underground facility. Participants are able to illustrate the minimum sources for searching for an underground facility, and know how to use permits and pre-job meetings to their full advantage.

Ground Disturbance - Level II

Level II is a 6.5-hour program with the first two hours encompassing Level I. Level II is designed for any party that is supervising a ground disturbance, independently performing a ground disturbance, or issuing and receiving ground disturbance permits. The program ensures that Level II personnel are familiar with, and fully understand, all the regulations and variances involved when a ground disturbance takes place. The course is presented in a logical sequence – from the pre-planning stage to the actual dig – and highlights the "'musts" compared to the "shoulds". Level II is the standardized program recognized by industry regulators. The prerequisite for this course is the successful completion of Level I. Participants learn how to clarify sources when searching for underground facilities, provide notification to the facility owner and receive owner notification. Participants gain an understanding of the necessary approvals/crossing agreements and regulations necessary before creating a ground disturbance. They learn to create a plot plan/site drawing, gain an understanding of line locating and learn about types of exposure. Participants will also learn how to do a back-fill inspection, as well as how to use permits and conduct pre-job meetings. Emergency response plans and what to do in case an underground facility is contacted are also covered.

Objectives are tested by written competency exam. Certification, valid for three years, is issued upon completion of objectives.
