"I am honored to be re-elected to serve as Chair on the California Underground Safety Board of Directors," said Marjorie Del Toro. "During my term on the Board, I am looking to continue our charge to improve the public's safety and of workers in subsurface operations. We will continue to put forward policy suggestions to address some of the challenges at job sites around California."
The California Underground Safety Board (Division of The CA Office of Energy Infrastructure Safety) - was created by the Dig Safe Act of 2016 to investigate accidents, develop excavation safety standards, and coordinate education and outreach programs. Members are charged with overseeing the safety of excavations around buried utilities by coordinating the state's education and outreach efforts, investigating accidents to determine their causes, setting standards for safe excavation, and ensuring the state's safe excavation laws are followed.

The NEP was in effect on April 8th, 2022, and will remain in effect for three years unless canceled or extended by a superseding directive.
