Council urges safety first

Ipswich City Council Mayor Paul Pisasale said operators of bobcats, front-end loaders and excavators should maintain the safety standards they have in their normal business practices.

“We have been advised by the Dial Before You Dig service for people using machinery in these areas to ensure they lodge an enquiry with the company’s website before undertaking any excavation involving machinery.

“All people need to do is ensure is that they lodge an enquiry over the Dial Before You Dig website prior to undertaking any form of excavation involving machinery,” Mr Pisasale said.
