Detection Educational Articles & Expert Insights

Health and safety for excavations



Civil engineering and excavating contractors now, more than ever need accurate, highly reliable and up-to-date information about underground utilities - available for immediate use. Consideration should always be given to knowing the exact location of all buried utilities before excavation and construction processes start, reducing the risk of utility strikes and enabling efficient planning.

Using latest Leica detection technologies, localising underground assets becomes a simple and efficient task, increasing safety of crews on-site and assuring protection of buried utilities, ultimately minimising health and safety risks, unplanned costs and downtime. Leica Geosystems Detection Solutions provide the most streamlined and integrated detection process in the field, covering avoidance, verification and mapping workflows combined with positioning systems and machine control.

Principles of Tracing Buried Utilities

The tracing and mapping of utilities is an essential part of any project looking to build on a site, whether it’s for the design team to find utilities to connect with or for avoidance for the ground workers to excavate safely.

Principles of Buried Utility Detection

Global expansion necessitates the expansion of existing and the development of new utility networks, which inevitably requires companies to undertake excavations to verify utility positions.

Why do utility strikes occur?

Smart Cities are growing at a blistering pace, relying on larger and more complex utility networks to help stimulate their rapid growth. Conversely, ageing cities struggle to maintain the existing infrastructure or find space for new installations.
