Before starting any work, whether on the public
highways or on private land, it's vitally important you have complied with legislation and follow safe digging practices in
accordance with HSE publication HSG47 Avoiding Danger from Underground Services to check the position of the mains, pipes,
services and other apparatus on site.
It's your responsibility to ensure safety information and guidance is provided to all relevant people (direct labour or contractors) working for you on or near the gas pipelines.
There should be no mechanical excavation above or near the gas main amd you should confirm the exact position
of the main using hand dug trial holes.
