Sygma Solutions Training Is Based On Practical Manufacturing Experience
It is estimated that there are some 1.5 million km of underground services in the UK – electricity cables, telecoms, gas pipes, water pipes, fibre optics, and more – and striking them when carrying out excavations causes at the absolute minimum a delay on the contract as a result of downtime while they are repaired, and can also result in severe financial implications. At the other end of the scale, there are some 600 people who suffer from serious injury every year and an average of 12 fatalities.
Between them, utility companies and local authorities carry out some 3.5 million to 4 million street works every year in order to maintain the underground services – and that is just work directly on the utilities, leave aside other contractors carrying out excavations for many other reasons, such as the construction of footings for building works. Underground services can also be found anywhere, not just under roads and pavements, and often in seemingly most unlikely places.
This is why surveyors who have a responsibility for locating and identifying underground services before any work is started need to be fully trained in the arts of so doing, and in the use of the equipment that is used. Chiefly, today these are the CAT and Genny radio detection locators and equipment, and Sygma Solutions is a company that is dedicated solely to the training of operatives in their use, and especially in their limitations. This latter point is of vital importance because the equipment does have certain limitations and it is vital that operatives understand what they are.
The company runs a CAT course providing CAT training which is based on the practical manufacturing experience of building CATs and Gennys, rather than knowledge acquired simply through the use of them, and so is uniquely qualified to train operatives as it has understanding of every aspect of the abilities and limitations of the equipment.
