 The Four P's of Excavation (plus Locate!)


There is an easy way to ensure you take all of the right steps in making your excavation project a success. Just follow the 4 P’s of Excavation:




Plan your job. Use the Dial Before You Dig service at least two business days before your job is due to begin to ensure you have the correct information you need to carry out a safe project.


Locate: Email or Call us




Potholing (hand digging) is a method to assist in establishing the exact location of all underground infrastructure.




Protecting and supporting the exposed infrastructure is the responsibility of the excavator. Always erect safety barriers in areas at risk to protect underground networks.




BUT only when you have planned, potholed and put the protective measures in place.
