ACTenviro is awarded the Gold Shovel Standard Certification

This is exciting! ACTenviro has received the Gold Shovel Standard Certification (GSS). This is an important certification for companies such as ACTenviro as it’s an indication of increased safety awareness and a commitment to continuous damage prevention improvement.


Gold Shovel Standard has rapidly become a permanent fixture in much of North America as the industry has embraced this important program. GSS certification is already required to work at specific client sites and is gaining popularity among the energy industry. Notably, GSS has been embraced by some of the largest telecom companies, gas and electric utilities, pipeline operators, engineering firms and a variety of municipalities.
