Excavating on campus could result in personal injury because of contact with underground utility energy sources and/or damage to underground systems (e.g. telephone, fire alarm, water/sewer).

To reduce the possibility of personal injury, an occupational health and safety procedure is in place for excavating on campus.

No excavations on university property may be undertaken without prior approval from the Department of Facilities Management.
