Location of Underground Assets


The Location of Underground Assets Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) provides details of the precautions to be followed to prevent damage to underground assets (including water and gas pipes, electricity, telecommunication and data cables, etc.) when excavation work is to be carried out in locations where these types of services may be present.

The SWMS provides information on how to ascertain if services are or may be present, and the methods of excavation to be used and precautions to be observed to prevent damage to them.
