Whether small and independently owned or larger with a well-known reputation, there are millions of excavation companies in the country. As such, it is important that you do what you can to stand out among the competition and make a name for yourself in the industry. Our Gold Shovel® certification can help you do just that and more by assessing and recognizing your team’s training and experience.

Every excavation company has its own slightly different way of doing things, and being Gold Shovel® certified is a way to get recognized for what you are doing correctly. Our Gold Shovel Standard® program can help you achieve compliance with the requirements requested of your company. Your company will need to submit an approved Excavation program and training for review. From there, our program is customized to meet these criteria and can be easily implemented into your business today. We will go above and beyond to create something that adheres to your specifications and works well with your preexisting practices.

The mission of Gold Shovel® certification is to certify that excavators and locators have adopted standard safety management elements into their excavating processes. This program also allows you to create and deploy the infrastructure to quantitatively measure and communicate their success in doing so, such that best-in-class performance can be rewarded. Because of this, getting Gold Shovel® certified is one of the best things you can do for your business to take it to the next level of popularity and recognition.
