Pre-Excavation Management Around Subsurface Utilities
Adrian’s knowledge of legislative obligations and techniques and procedures for working safely around sub-surface utilities was exceptional. The course content was practical with real examples of what can go wrong if adequate preplanning is not implemented. Great course, highly recommend it.
We have put 115 Project Managers, Engineers, Foreman and WHSQ through the course. The feedback has been resoundingly positive. Some of the most positive feedback we got from the training was: relevant, practical, and very well presented. I know it will help a great deal in helping us reduce service strikes on our sites.
A well structured course that will benefit our engineers and supervisors.
As CEO of a LG Council I will encourage all of our key staff to undertake this webinar. The whole process and importance of undertaking a DBYD assessment before undertaking any works and how to read and interpret the information was valuable. It was a professional presentation and the presenter had a great understanding of all the topics. The webinar showed very good examples and consequences of failing to gain proper information and/ or understanding the information.
It was timely to remind the team of how important the DBYD service is and an opportunity to learn about the updates. It is difficult at the moment to get access to training so this was a great opportunity to upskill in a safe environment. The course showed the cost of complacency, some in depth information regarding the differences in how services can be marked according to which plan you have. How a plan that appears professional can be dangerous taking into account the quality of the survey information (or utility plan limitations) and the survey quality classification system.
I had plenty of positive feedback from the team post training. It was very relevant information for our industry, and was delivered expertly by Adrian.
It was a comprehensive session which covered the entire process. I believe everyone could benefit from this regardless their role in the industry. As a designer, I now better understand how to prepare my utility survey requests and which parts need to be highlighted. Also, the quality level information helps me to assess how reliable the survey information can be for the design purpose.
The webinar way exceeded my expectations. I found myself fully absorbed in the material and the presenter’s delivery.
I believe the Pre-Excavation Management Course should be mandatory for those delegating a team on an excavation site. Prior to attending the course I had a sense of false faith in the safety and accuracy of the utility plans. After completing the training, I have a much more cautious approach as plans can be inaccurate and may not include all services. I recommend this course 10/10 for safety. There are people’s lives at risk.
I found the Webinars very informative and Adrian’s presentation was excellent throughout. I will definitely be recommending it to other colleagues.
