One thing that has held true throughout this pandemic is our members’ commitment to damage prevention and public safety. No matter the challenge, safety has always remained the top priority. This year, we have honed in on 3 key areas of focus where we can come alongside our members to make a difference in our industry: reducing damages, raising awareness, and eliminating waste. To learn more about our efforts in these areas, please reach out to me any time. I am happy to help.
As we come into the final quarter of the year, I imagine a
worldwide collective sigh. This has been a year for the record books and one that many will be happy to place in the rearview. It has, however, been a
year of learning. It has been a year in which the human spirit has persevered to overcome adversity and get the job done. Our industry has not seen much of a slow down since the pandemic started and many have had to get the job done in challenging conditions. I have heard countless stories of how our membership has moved to almost entirely work-at- home conditions, while others are observing strict protocols and “going in” to work every day (wherever that may be).
Across Texas, we are doing what we need to do to protect the state’s critical infrastructure so that we can keep things going. We are making safety a top priority for those working on and around buried facilities. We hope you enjoy this edition of the Texas811 magazine and find the articles helpful as you work to keep our state moving into the future.
