Vacuum Excavation Safety Benefits

Vacuum Excavation Safety Benefits

Vacuum excavation has a number of major benefits over the traditional use of manual excavation, not least the improved health and safety aspect of any operation.

Vacuum Excavation Safety Benefits

Remotely Operated Vacuum Evacuation

Our trucks operate using a boom with an extended reach and come with a whole range of attachments that can be used to quickly and efficiently excavate any area.

• Our vacuum excavator equipment ensures that you have the perfect tool to dig any area cleanly and safely.
• The remote operation means that work in all areas can be performed at a distance, ensuring that there is no risk to the operator.
• This greatly reduces the challenges that come with manual digging and the hand vibrations which can cause injury to operatives.

You can choose to operate the truck and vacuum evacuation yourself if you have trained operatives available or opt to have one of our own highly experienced operators on-site with you.

Safe Excavation for Hard to Reach Areas

We have multiple trucks and a range of different pipe sizes to suit any excavation site. We take the danger out of dealing with hard to reach or difficult areas of ground that may put work teams at risk. We are able to break up hard ground using air lances and air breakers to ensure the speedy excavation of your site.

Clean Excavation

If you are operating in a built-up area or want to keep dust and debris to a minimum to protect your work team, our vacuum trucks capture all dust inside their tanks, using 42 separate air filters to ensure safe working, even for those close to the excavation.

Safety On-Site: Our Certifications

If you are inviting a hire company on-site, you want to make sure that they have the safety aspect of working in areas such as this nailed down. We’ve been operating for many years and have built long-term relationships providing truck hires to construction and civil engineering outfits both large and small.

During that time, we’ve always ensured our operators are fully trained and have the necessary certifications with regards to on-site safety. Our health and safety manager is tasked with making certain that everyone is up to date with their qualifications and training. That includes training in new techniques, updating on the latest health and safety regulations and taking refresher courses.

The minimum standard for each operator is that they complete the CSCS but many have additional certifications and qualifications including those for:

  • Confined Spaces
  • EUSR Water
  • Highways England
  • PTS
  • Safety-Critical Medical
  • SPA Petrochemical Forecourt
  • Street Works

We’re always looking to improve our safety and accreditation. If your business requires any additional training, Safe Excavation is happy to meet that requirement.
