Safety in Collaboration
Excavation Safety Alliance (ESA) believes there's safety in numbers, safety in education, and safety in collaboration. Our mission is to connect the excavation safety and damage prevention world to create open lines of communication that ultimately save lives and prevent damages. Find out how we're doing that below.
What We Do
Every ESA initiative, from conferences to publications, is wholly focused on improving safety in excavation through collaboration.
At the center of all of these initiatives is you, damage prevention professional, and others like you in the industry. Because, at the end of the day, ESA doesn't employ any SUE experts, GPR specialists, or trenchless professionals (As you'll see in the team listings below). From Conference speakers, to Magazine authors, to Town Hall panelists, we rely on the diverse perspectives of industry experts. Our superpower is creating spaces and platforms for those perspectives to come together — Places where discussions become collaboration and collaboration leads to solutions.
Pipeline Ag Safety Alliance
PASA consists of a dedicated group of utility operators that have teamed up with the National Association of County Agricultural Agents to help deliver safety messages to farmers and ranchers around the nation.
Global GPR Congress
Global GPR Congress is an annual virtual event that attracts hundreds of GPR professionals from all over the world. The 2023 GPR Congress had registrants from 21 countries!
Locator Safety & Appreciation Week (LSAW)
Always held the last full week of April, Locator Safety & Appreciation Week celebrates the essential and too often underappreciated work of utility locate technicians.
