Gold Shovel Certificate

Gold Shovel Certificate

CANUS Corporation is proud to announce that we have received PG&E Gold Shovel Standard Certification.

This first-of-its kind excavation safety program is designed to reduce dig-ins and protect PG&E’s underground gas and electric system. Safety being the first and highest priority, the Gold Shovel Standard Certification will ensure that PG&E’s hired contractors adhere to the safest excavation standards. Safe excavation prevents injuries, property damage, inconvenient outages, project delays and high costs.

PG&E developed the Gold Shovel Standard in accordance with California Government Code 4216 which governs excavation work in the state. Among other things, contractors must demonstrate that they call 811 before any excavation work begins to have underground lines located and marked by utility owners.

CANUS Corporation looks forward to working with PG&E and its affiliates to grow this program to be an industry standard, showing our commitment to ensuring public safety and effective damage prevention practices.

CANUS provides extensive Damage Prevention Standby Inspection Services within the Pipeline Inspection Services line of business offering.
