For the past six years, JimBob Sims has given talks promoting excavation safety throughout the Damage Prevention area of Texas811. There’s more to excavation safety than just warning against digging into a line and inadvertently cutting power. Unsafe excavation can also lead to extra costs and severe personal health consequences, even death.
That’s why JimBob is so passionate about educating groups about safety. He’s willing to speak just about anywhere in the state, and likely in your area.
Why schedule an excavation safety talk
JimBob’s safety talks are primarily for education, especially for commercial enterprises, and to advise on how to overcome excavation challenges. His presentations are an integral part of many companies’ employee training on excavation safety and compliance, and he is able to provide group-specific customization if needed.
According to JimBob, if he can reach even one person during an excavation safety talk, then his efforts have been worthwhile. He enjoys meeting people from all over the state, building relationships and “seeing Texas through my windshield.”
The importance of rules, rules, rules
Rules are in place to protect property and preserve safety. It is to everyone’s advantage to respect and comply with applicable rules and laws. When you call Texas811 before your dig, your call is routed to a notification center, where your information is added to a database and sent electronically to the appropriate utilities. It’s an essential step to keeping you, your home and your family and neighbors safe from potential mishaps.
