Know Your Ground - Working Safely with Underground Services - DVD


Underground services include all underground pipes, cables and equipment associated with the electricity, gas, water and telecommunications industries.

Damage to such underground services can cause fatal or severe injury. This DVD addresses the essential aspects of working safely with underground services with tips drawn from several typical ground-working scenarios and includes new and essential advice relating to the use of locating devices such as the ground-penetrating radar and the ubiquitous CAT and Genny.

This programme also provides a general introduction to the use of safe digging technologies including pneumatic-excavation and hydro-excavation as an alternative to traditional mechanical digging methods.

This programme is aimed at clients, designers, CDM co-ordinators, contractors, employers, owners and operators of underground services, managers and supervisors and others concerned with planning, organising and supervising work near such services.

There is also a bonus title containing an anecdotal storey based on a real life event (The Real Impact) when a young man lost his life on his first day at work by accidentally coming into contact with a live electrical underground service.

The program is fully compliant with the UK HSE guidance note HSG47 “Avoiding Danger from Underground Services”.
