step 1

Plan for safety first

An excavation of any scale has the potential to damage assets located around the site.  A strike could spell service interruptions, delays to your project, costly repairs and – in a worst-case scenario – injury or death (accompanied by lawsuits).

However, if you plan your project safety with Abaxa’s systemised (and extremely accurate) utility location services, you avoid this risk and can proceed with absolute peace of mind.

When you choose Abaxa you ensure a complete assessment and accurate marking of the utilities on your construction site.

How we work to ensure safety:

  • Firstly, Abaxa has a ‘one point of contact’ policy, meaning you’ll be well looked after and can feel confident with the process.
  • You’ll have a single damage prevention technician assigned to your site with the required utility industry experience and accreditation. This approach ensures the accuracy of your project’s utility markings and communication.
  • Abaxa’s highly trained, experienced (and accredited) technicians arrive on-site, assess all variables and proactively resolve issues to ensure damage prevention. Our technicians know exactly how to identify and locate a vast array of buried utilities. 
  • The level of utility detection includes poor utility prints, congested easements, untraceable utilities, deteriorated tracer lines, and deep utilities.
  • If problems occur, you’ll be able to contact your Abaxa assigned technician rather than trying to connect with various utility companies, wasting time and money.

Our experienced, personalised approach translates to a reduced level of risk for potential damage, downtime, and injuries.
