Dial Before You Dig
27 January 2011
Protecting the underground network.
Damages to utility services such as Electricity, Water, Gas and Telecommunications while excavating occur every day. These incidents are not only dangerous to workers and the general public, but can also be very costly. Interrupted services to businesses, essential services and households can be avoided by understanding how to obtain and read plans through Dial Before You Dig, an initiative supported by Coates Hire.
Learn before you dig
Coates Hire offers training on Working Near Underground Assets which explains plan reading and other skills and techniques needed to locate underground services before excavating. Courses can be tailored to include your own processes or permits. Practical workshops on Vacuum Excavators can be included if desired. Call 1300 657 867 for more information.
