Not yet, some have asked what its for but most just sign and accept it. I tell them its as much to protect me as it is to protect them.

Mine states in big letters about underground services and about damage to ground/surfaces and ensuring they have permission to instruct me to dig where they point.

The biggest issue for me is if its a reg cust then i sometimes forget to fill 1 in but seen as they have already signed previous it means they have accepted my conditions, in my eyes anyway

For me, it's just peace of mind, security and the fact that should I need any help, I can pick up the phone and be able to speak to some of the most expericened people in the business when it comes to differences between two parties. I have contract signed by the client, and they have a copy and so do I and that's that really. You also get an magazine that gets sent out keeping you up to date with what is happening in the industry and any new reg/rules that have come into play, money well spent in my eyes. Give them a ring, it might suit what your after?

legally speaking you can't negate your liability like all those worthless signs the management accept no liability well actually they do in a court of law.

it would be very hard for you to get out of a services hit if your man was driving, the only way would be if say the service owner i.e. yorkshire water gave you a plan and said its all clear. but anyone but the service owner giving the all clear is just hearsay.

we've just hit a 10" water main 600mm down in a 2m cut and fill menage, two of them next to each other! so there no way the menage is going where the planners and designers have sighted it, they also recommended moving it to the location where the water main are they clearly didn't do a services search,

so its going to be an interesting bun fight but at the end of the day my guy put a tooth through it with 13 tonner so when united utilities want their pound of flesh its going to be interesting. we dug all round it and made it easy of them to sleave it.

this is in the middle of a field and we dug up a dead horse as well only 2m from the pair of mains haha

dan if you can gather up as many numbers of utility lads as you can, most will fix a pipe cable etc for few hundred quid cash. if you have them on a job doing new connection ask them if they do cash foreigners if not they'll know someone. has got more difficult (more expensive) with sat tracking on vans they have to sometimes kick a bit up to controller etc

to the credit of gas and electric board, i always try and swing some kind of deal or get details for someone i can call but they never allow it. fuckers. best advice i had was to tell them you think its leaking rather than its damaged, that way they can say its a leak they repaired but take a decent drink from you and no one is any the wiser
