Underground services - Guide for safety with underground services

This guide outlines the hazards that can arise from work near underground services and gives advice on how to reduce the risk.

It deals principally with risks to health and safety and is not so concerned with damage that has no personal risk. However, the precautions needed to reduce the risk of personal injury will reduce the risk of damage generally, and lower the cost of performing work to utilities, contractors, and society.
