Start Off Safe During New Home Construction

Even if you’re an experienced excavator, it’s required to notify SC811 of your planned excavation to help prevent damages that may result in fines, utility service interruption and injury – even death. Safe digging is everyone’s responsibility. 

This page includes resources and course links for excavators in the field of new home construction and manufactured housing installation in South Carolina.
