Digging holes in the ground is a fundamental part of construction and of the installation and maintenance of buried utilities. Every time ground is broken, there is a risk of damaging buried cables and pipes.
Damage can be both expensive and dangerous and can seriously impact companies’ reputations. Being able to excavate safely is a fundamental competence for utility companies, their contractors and the construction industry.
Damaging underground utilities can be dangerous: reports across the world describe serious injury or death to workers and bystanders that can result from striking buried electricity cables or gas pipelines. Damage happens when no detection tools are used, working practices are not adequate or are not understood and on-site behaviours do not correctly reflect desired working practices.
Radiodetection offers a wide selection of Electromagnetic, Ground Penetrating Radar, Acoustic and Magnetic locating solutions that can help identify subsurface utilities and their exact depth, helping operatives to dig safely. Many products offer built in GPS or wireless connectivity to third party high accuracy GNSS systems, while our mobile apps allow the creation of detailed maps directly from the field.
Why use a cable and pipe locator?
First and foremost, increase the safety of your site personnel by lowering the number of cables and pipes they hit. Strikes are a significant danger to health and can cause serious injury, sometimes even death.
Strikes to cables and pipes will almost inevitably lead to wasteful delays to your project.
Help prevent damage to utilities and disruptions to services, which can be costly to repair and damaging to your reputation.
Lower your exposure to compensation and fines for non-compliance to regulations.
