On July 1 2010, New South Wales became the first Australian jurisdiction to enshrine Dial Before You Dig into law.
Today Dial Before You Dig and WorkSafe Victoria announce an alliance, which is aimed at reducing the risk of injury to workers as a result of damage caused annually to Victoria’s networks of underground assets.
The free referral service Dial Before You Dig and electrical and gas safety regulator Energy Safe Victoria have formed an alliance in a bid to reduce the millions of dollars worth of damage caused annually to Victoria's networks of underground assets.
Hundreds of thousands of kilometres of hidden underground pipes and cables carry essential services to households and businesses each and every day of the year. We don't think about them very much, but the extent to which we rely on them is enormous.
It has been a busy time for the Western Australia business over the last few months preparing for the transition over to the National Dial Before You Dig service. As of 1 July 2007, all West Australian enquiries will be received and processed into the national system and then sent to the WA members to process the request. The WA manager, Kim Rushton, and members will remain as Dial Before You Dig WA.
