San Jose is primarily a farming community that boomed after World War II veterans returned from overseas looking to make a life in the country they had just finished defending. This in combination with the recent industrialization of the area due to the war effort was a perfect recipe for a booming economy.
Hosting some worldwide brands such as IBM, Cisco, eBay, and Adobe make this a beacon for technology and other people looking to strike it rich in the Silicon Valley. While the populations head is clearly technology minded, they still have fantastic sports teams such as the San Jose Sharks, and the San Jose Earthquakes.

Gold Shovel Standard (GSS) is a nonprofit organization committed to improving workforce and public safety and the integrity of buried infrastructure. GSS believes that greater transparency in all aspects of damage prevention among buried-asset operators, locators and excavators is essential to drive continuous improvement, and vital to increasingly safe working conditions and communities.
Standardized damage prevention measurements are a key part of the GSS mission, and the establishment and broad deployment of metrics are core components of Gold Shovel Standard’s efforts to improve public and workforce safety. Gold Shovel Standard believes that no significant reduction in damages will be obtained unless all responsible parties (operators, excavators, locators) continuously improve, and measurements underpin continuous improvement.
Every six minutes in the United States, an underground utility line is damaged during excavation work. In 2014, PG&E experienced nearly 2,000 dig-ins to our underground facilities—that's almost six dig-ins per day, resulting in $11 million in damage for the year.
In response, PG&E launched the Gold Shovel Standard, a first-of-its kind excavation safety program designed to reduce dig-ins and protect PG&E's underground gas and electric system. With safety as highest priority, PG&E developed the Gold Shovel Standard Certification process to ensure that PG&E's hired contractors adhere to the safest excavation standards. Safe excavation prevents injuries, property damage, inconvenient outages, project delays and high costs.
Beginning January 1, 2016, contractors who wish to excavate or subcontract out excavation work for PG&E must obtain Gold Shovel Standard Certification by making a commitment to safe digging practices in accordance with the California "One Call Law" (California Government Code 4216) and the Common Ground Alliance best practices for excavation.
