The Ohio Utilities Protection Service (O.U.P.S.) is committed to helping all of our members — from contractors and excavators to utilities and underground facility owners — keep their communities, consumers and employees safe. We also work hard to ensure a smooth, streamlined locate request process.

This section of our web site is specifically designed for your needs. Here, you will find information about i-dig Newtin RTE, our state-of-the-art, web-based ticket-entry system; upcoming member events; legislative news; and more. You can also request a FREE safety talk for your company or work crew and download our "Member Toolbox," filled with customizable materials to help you promote safe digging with ease.

If you have a member-related question or concern that's not addressed in this section, please contact us at 1-800-311-3692, ext. 4903.
