Scope This risk management plan covers all workers engaged to conduct tasks which may involve work in the vicinity of any and all utility services, including those located above ground, overhead and underground. Utility services are to be protected from all work activities conducted on site.
The health and safety of all workers and other persons is to be protected at all times in respect of work conducted on site, in particular work involving service utilities.
