PipeServ provided training on the use of “pipe and cable locators” to scan, find and trace underground services. Our client has a policy that any ground penetration exceeding 150mm requires an Excavation Permit and as such the completion of underground scanning by competent persons.

This company owns pipe locators from two different manufacturers and PipeServ was chosen to provide the necessary training incorporating both models. With four hours of theory and a further four hours practical experience; we were able to nominate a list of competent persons for future scanning and permit approval.  PipeServ is able to assist with the supply of pipe location equipment and training services.                                                                                                                                             This short clip is just a small part of the practical training:  Pipe & Cable Location / Underground Scanning
