This SWMS covers underground service locating, using electronic detection method and equipment. Services include electricity, gas, potable water, steam, waste water (sewer/storm water) telecommunications, LPG/oil pipelines. This SWMS does not cover entering or working in Confined Spaces, trenches or areas where excavation has been done. This SWMS does not cover exposing services, excavation activities or servicing of underground utilities. Dedicated SWMS should be developed for these tasks, and for any risks not covered in this SWMS.

Remember: The content of the SWMS should be refined over time and include consultation with workers and other persons conducting a business or undertaking. Prior to each new activity, the SWMS must be reviewed and revised to ensure it applies to the high risk construction work and the actual site you are working at.
