Unfortunately, incidents do happen. There are hundreds of thousands of kilometres of underground pipes and cables which carry our essential services to households and businesses around the country.
Over the years we’ve seen a wide variety of accidents and disruptions from excavators unwittingly digging up underground assets. The impact can be significant with service interruptions, costly delays to projects, large damage bills and injury and even death.
The Dial Before You Dig service exists to help minimise these damages and disruptions from occurring. That is why it is the essential first step of any safe excavation.
