Facility Owner Locator

Practice Statement:

A plan is developed for managing unpredictable fluctuations.

Practice Description:

Facility owners/operators and/or their representatives develop methods to sufficiently forecast and plan for future workloads so that ticket requests may be completed in a timely manner. This ensures that adequate personnel and equipment are available to complete all locate requests. Note: this practice does not limit the number of one call requests from excavators.
