Phillips 66 Announces One-Call Elite Partners
Each spring, as the weather grows warmer and soil thaws, plans begin for digging projects of all sizes—so much so, that the underground utility industry has designated April as National Safe Digging Month.
Thousands of homeowners, farmers and professional excavators will dig near Phillips 66 Pipeline LLC’s (Phillips 66) 18,000 miles of pipelines throughout the year, and with so many people and companies working near its assets, Phillips 66 wants to recognize those who are doing it the right way— those who make calling 811 to have underground utilities located and marked before digging a priority.
This month, the company announced its newest One-Call Elite Partners. During 2017, these third-party professional excavators made at least 100 locate requests near Phillips 66 pipelines and completed the ensuing work with no known One-Call process errors.
In recognition of their commitment to safe digging, Phillips 66 is recognizing its One-Call Elite Partners on its website. All selected companies will receive a certificate and items for their employees as well as materials to help them publicize their recognition as a One-Call Elite Partner. Additionally, companies with 300 or more locate requests will receive a plaque for display in their office.
If you are an excavator, you can increase your chances of becoming a One-Call Elite Partner by always calling 811 before starting any job planning or work.
