Often times many of our customers call us EMERGENCY due to a broken underground service. After starting an assisted excavation work where apparently there are no buried services when making the first ditches, pipes of buried services such as water, energy, communications, or worse still gas are broken. Leaving the area or sector without service. Oh nooo! They are the first words of a new problem. Does the scene seem familiar to you?

Sometimes due to a false concept of savings, this service is not carried out, the respective risk analyzes are not carried out, which will consequently require a higher cost and delayed emergency service.

Statistically, we have noticed that many buried utility breakage accidents are common. However, most of them do not turn out to be personal accidents. Nonetheless, it is important to mention the impact that material losses and interruptions in the services provided have on the whole operation. This issue translates into work stoppages, higher costs, and lots of time.

A Recommendation to be implemented by companies dedicated to excavation service or the management of works projects is to add within their work process THE MANDATORY PERFORMANCE OF DETECTION OF BURIED SERVICES, even in open terrain that does not pose risks to the excavator.

Sometimes due to a false concept of savings, this service is not carried out, the respective risk analyzes are not carried out, which will consequently require a higher cost and delayed emergency service.

At PROJECTS RF USA we are focused on providing this service for the detection of buried services, trying to eliminate or mitigate the risks of their breaking, which leads to a work plan without delay, adjusted to the planned costs and complying with the design guidelines.
