New Excavation Guidelines

New Excavation Guidelines

TSSA’s Fuels Safety Program recently adopted the new CSA Z247 Code for damage prevention to underground infrastructure – effective April 1, 2017. To align with this standard, TSSA is updating the current Excavation Guideline, which is under final review by stakeholders, including the Electrical Safety Authority. Highlights include:

  • updating definitions to align with CSA Z247, TSSA, ESA and Ontario One Call regulations;
  • accepting electronic locates as well as paper; and
  • adding CSA Z247 hyperlinks to guide the user.

Stay tuned for the updated TSSA/ESA Excavation Guideline.
