Event Details

62 seconds… That’s the amount of time before the next dangerous utility line strike somewhere in the United States. GPRS is here to help us make sure that the next hit isn’t on our jobsite. 

Join us as we explain how visualizing your subsurface infrastructure can greatly reduce or eliminate unnecessary excavation, serious accidents, downtime, and expensive reworks. OSHA will give safety updates and then a representative from GPRS will provide you with best practices and methodologies to keep your site and your team safe. 


  • Why you must call 811 before you dig, and why that call is only the first step in a safe excavation.
  • How to safely cut and core concrete to avoid cutting post tension cables, rebar, and conduit.
  • How to avoid expensive and dangerous cross bores when using trenchless technology

And more..


Amanda Byrne is the Philadelphia Business Development Manager for GPRS. She joined the firm in 2019 when it acquired Master Locators and brought with her a wealth of construction and utility industry knowledge. 

Building strong relationships and bringing educational opportunities to companies and jobsites throughout the region are just two of the many reasons Byrne loves what she does. “I enjoy my job: being part of multiple key projects in the area, and building relationships with our clients.”

One of the most important aspects of her job is bringing concrete and utility safety education to companies and jobsites. Her hard work has paid off; in 2022, Byrne received the GPRS Growth Accelerator Award for her outstanding outreach efforts in the Greater Philadelphia area.  

Byrne holds a bachelor’s degree from Penn State, is a big college and pro football fan, and the mother of two.
