- Utility Service Strikes are one of the greatest risks in carrying out any excavations, this is virtually eliminated by using vacuum excavation as recommended by the HSE.
- Slips, Trips and Fall injuries have been greatly reduced due to no excavated material being stored within the work area. All material excavated is immediately transported to suction excavator.
- Manual Handling Injuries all but eliminated due to operation not requiring manual excavation or plant and equipment to be moved to and from work area.
- Public Safety in greatly increased due to smaller excavations and the reduction of time spent on site, reduced plant and equipment on-site, elimination of excavated material within work area.
