Gold Shovel Standard

McDonald & Ross has received its “Gold Shovel Standard” certification.   Gold Shovel Standard is a performance monitoring program focused on excavation safety.

Gold Shovel Standard philosophy:


A Company that is Gold Shovel Standard Certified has policies and procedures, which, if followed, make it unlikely that the company will cause an at fault damage to buried infrastructure.  The program confirms the adequacy of the participant’s policies and procedures and produces a rating, known as an EICO score, which is a measure of how carefully a company excavates around buried infrastructure.
