Ground Disturbance Level II – (Global)

Level II® is designed for any party that is supervising a ground disturbance, independently performing a ground disturbance, or issuing and receiving ground disturbance permits. The program ensures that Level II® personnel are familiar with, and fully understand all the regulations and variances involved when a ground disturbance takes place. The course is presented in a logical sequence – from the pre-planning stage to the actual dig – and highlights the “‘musts” compared to the “shoulds”. Level II is the standardized program recognized by industry regulators.

Students learn how to clarify sources when searching for underground facilities, provide notification to the facility owner and receive owner notification. Students gain an understanding of the necessary approvals/crossing agreements and regulations necessary before creating a ground disturbance. They learn to create a plot plan/site drawing, gain an understanding of line locating and learn about types of exposure. Students will also learn how to do a back-fill inspection, as well as how to use permits and conduct pre-job meetings. Emergency response plans and what to do in case an underground facility is contacted are also covered.
