An in-depth look at our range of technical services
Every year in the UK, more than one million excavations take place. The risks to employees carrying out work can be high. Moreover, delays and interruptions stemming from excavations can impact utility companies’ service, thereby potentially hampering projects and damaging brand loyalty and industry reputation.
The Health and Safety Executive has published a document (HSG47) about safe digging. The report states that it is compulsory to obtain plans regarding all underground services. Additionally, owners and operators must be consulted. Therefore, employees and subcontractors must have access to the most up-to-date utility records. Centara provides a market-leading utility asset records search service to obtain this information, known as C2s, stat packs or safe-dig packs.
