First standard for classifying subsurface information released

The development of the standard also had input from Dial Before You Dig and the National Utility Location Contractors Association.

The newly published standard aims to improve public safety, reduce costly damage to property and provided more accurate information on the location and condition of subsurface utility infrastructure than previously existed.

This new standard reflects increasing concerns over safety and third-party damages that have led to a variety of techniques being available for the detection of underground utilities. To find out what techniques are available to aid in utility detection, Trenchless Australasia has released a free e-guide, walking installation contractors and asset owners through all the necessary precautions needed when working in and around critical infrastructure.

The Ultimate Guide to Utility Detection outlines the differences between each investigative approach and what techniques should be considered complementary to one another.

This valuable guide is able to be distributed as a free resource thanks to the support of Sponsors Access Detection, Detection Solutions, Ditch Witch and Vivax Metrotech AUS.
