Cable Avoidance Training Is Critical For Contractors Undertaking Groundwork

Any contractor undertaking excavations of any description must be aware of the possibility, or indeed the likelihood, of underground cables and utilities that are at the precise point, or very close to, where the excavation has to take place. In fact, the problem should be approached from the point of view that there are very likely to be underground utilities and cables, rather than the fact that it is unlikely.

Cable Avoidance Training From Sygma Solutions

Cable strikes are running at about an average of 60,000 every year in the UK as a result of contractors digging without knowledge of underground utilities. That is an average of 165 every single day of the year and, at best, results in a delay on the contract while the utility sends workers to resolve the problem. A cable strike can also result in minor injury, serious injury, and in a handful of cases, fatalities.

If you don’t know exactly what is under the ground, at best you might hit a water pipe which will make you wet. At worst you will hit an electricity cable which can easily kill, or a gas pipe which can cause a huge explosion and do the same.

CATSCAN Training For Cable Avoidance Is Critical

It is a fact that there are far too many cable strikes by operatives engaged in groundwork throughout the UK. One cable strike is one too many, but according to one widely reported set of figures there are approximately 4 million excavations in the UK every year resulting in some 60,000 cable strikes!
