SET, Safe Excavation Practices Training

The Safe Excavation Training (SET) course sets the standard on damage prevention and safe excavation practices around underground infrastructure. It is the knowledge requirement for excavators in Ontario.


Excavators who successfully complete the training will be awarded the Safe Excavation Certificate, demonstrating they know best practices and proper procedures to minimize damage, ensure worker and public safety, and keep projects on time and on budget. They enhance their own and their company’s reputation as professionals dedicated to the health of the industry and the public.


Developed by the ORCGA in consultation with numerous subject matter experts and corporate training experts Flint Learning Solutions, this training is based on the latest research and resources on excavation best practices, legislation and standards. It provides instruction on the fundamentals of compliance, planning and design, notification service, locating and marking, and excavation.
