Before undertaking any form of excavation, it is vital that a contractor takes every possible precaution to avoid striking any type of underground services. The consequences of so doing can be far-reaching and in a few cases fatal. Striking an electricity cable can cause injury through the explosive effects of arcing current together with any fire or flames which may result. Injuries are typically severe.
Damaging a gas pipe can cause an instant leak or a leak some time later. Fire and explosion can occur. The risk of damaging a pipe carrying LPG (Liquid Petroleum Gas) is greater than natural gas since it is heavier than air and doesn't disperse easily. It can travel for long distances underground and accumulate in cellars and basements.
Damaging a sewer pipe can cause severe health risks to workers and potential ground collapse and possible environmental pollution.
Telephone and TV cables are not normally associated with any personal injury to workers, but the repairs can be expensive and cause considerable inconvenience and loss of income to businesses relying on them.
Striking a water pipe is less likely to result in injury than electricity cables or gas pipes, but even so a jet of water under pressure from a main can cause injury if striking a person. It may also contain stones and other debris from the earth surrounding the pipe. In addition, it can result in flooding and the rapid collapse of the sides of an excavation.
