April | National Safe Digging Month

The Common Ground Alliance (CGA) is excited to launch several new tools and graphics to support your outreach this April – including their new Excavator Toolkit and 2023 National Safe Digging Month (NSDM) press release.

Visit CGA’s new Excavator Toolkit page to download a range of resources that you can use to meet the “50 in 5” challenge, activate for specific NSDM campaigns, or implement throughout the year. The Excavator Toolkit contains:

  • Internal messaging: Are you a contractor new to CGA? This tool can help you introduce CGA and NSDM to your employees via email, newsletter or other digital media.
  • Toolbox Talk one-pager: An eye-catching flier that can be used to guide a daily Toolbox Talk or Safety Moment dedicated to 811 and safe excavation practices.
  • Infographics: A suite of four graphics is available for use on social media or in newsletters, presentations and other outreach. Based on DIRT data and inclusive of 811 campaign messaging updates, these tools are designed to help target top damage root causes.
  • Social media messages: Crafted to work in conjunction with the infographics or on their own, these excavator-targeted social messages encourage effective and consistent use of the 811 system and adherence to CGA Best Practices.
