In its third year, the Louisiana
Damage Prevention Summit is produced with the endorsement,
sponsorship and partnership of major organizations in Louisiana from
the underground industry. The Summit has become the largest
gathering of damage prevention and excavation personnel representing
all stakeholder groups from across the state.
The Louisiana Damage Prevention Summit offers many educational,
networking and informational opportunities from both national and
statewide perspectives. Some of the proposed sessions include trench
safety, latest updates on laws and rules related to protecting
underground utilities, dangers and the avoidance of cross bores, and
how to conduct a damage investigation that will hold up in court.
The 2014 Summit is scheduled for March 17 – 19 at the Crowne
Plaza Hotel in Baton Rouge. To learn more about activities and a
