Safety Meetings


Every year Diggers Hotline and the Damage Prevention Council of Wisconsin holds a series of “safety meetings” throughout the state for contractors, excavators, municipal workers, and utility workers. These meetings promote safe digging practices and the importance of utilizing Diggers Hotline. Each meeting begins with a buffet meal, followed by our safety focused program, and wraps up with door prizes. The meetings last approximately two hours and are free of charge.¬†For questions relating to these meetings email Safety Meetings.
