Underground Utilities

Safety is the Foundation of Everything We Do!

OWN Your Safety was founded to address a critical and missing need within the ground disturbance industry-  Utility Infrastructure Awareness (UIA).  UIA training starts with keeping workers safe through KNOWING. To reduce the risk of an underground utility strike and mitigate the exposure to liabilities, workers need to understand the complex utility locates process from beginning to end.

For over 25 years, Grant Piraine has been at the frontline of excavation work, underground utility detection, training   and the development of best practices. He is the founder of OnSite Locates Inc., a successful utility locate company in Ontario that quickly grew to become one of Ontario’s most reputable utility locate contracting companies, specializing in;

  • Private locates
