In 2019, 30 contractor safety breakfasts were held in 30 different communities across the Province. Six team leads from supporting organizations delivered the presentation and video to over 3,000 attendees. In the past five years, more than 17,000 have been to one of these breakfasts about digging safe and we appreciate the 20 industry sponsors that have supported these efforts.
