You can help promote safety on your job and in your community by calling 1-888-721-7877. This toll free number is operated statewide by Palmetto Utility Protection Service (PUPS), a one-call system to improve community and job safety for contractors, construction personnel and the general public. One call will give you location information about underground member facilities when digging or excavating in South Carolina. The one-call system operates between 7a.m. and 7p.m. Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. Emergencies will be processed promptly.
ONE CALL FOR SAFETY! THIS IS A FREE SERVICE!
The Underground Utility Damage Prevention Act: This law, passed July 19, 1978, established a one-call system and requires that anyone starting any work operation that includes excavating, boring, pile-driving, blasting or digging must report this information to area utility operators at least three working days in advance. A single call may be all that’s needed. Non-members must be notified individually.
You can dig it if you do the right thing first – call!
