4.15 Documentation of Work Performed


Practice Statement:

Documentation of work performed on a locate is maintained.

Practice Description:

A facility locator always documents what work was completed on a locate request. This assists in the locate process by requiring a locator to review what was located and then to verify that all facilities within the requested area were marked. Careful documentation helps ensure that there is an accurate record of the work performed by the locator and helps eliminate confusion over what work was requested by the excavator.
