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.
It's your responsibility to ensure safety information and guidance is provided to all direct labourers or contractors working for you on or near the gas pipelines.
There should be no mechanical excavation above or near the gas main and you should confirm the exact position of the main using hand dug trial holes.
