This guidance is aimed at all those involved in commissioning, planning, managing and carrying out work on or near underground services. It will also be of use to the owners and operators of such services.
It outlines the potential dangers of working near underground services and gives advice on how to reduce any direct risks to people's health and safety, as well as the indirect risks arising through damage to services.
It explains the three basic elements of a safe system of work during excavation:
- Planning the work
- Locating and identifying buried services
- Safe excavation

Why and How to carry out Risk Assessment for Highways Projects
All Parish or Town Councils must conduct a risk assessment for the tasks undertaken under the project. Significant findings of the risk assessment should be recorded below and communicated to the volunteer workers.
Some general guidance to aid the risk assessment process by detailing a list of the common hazard and control considerations that are generally associated with the scope of activities included in the project can be found in the Hazard Information Sheet, the list is not exhaustive and should be reviewed against the site and then relevant information entered on to the form below.
All Parish and Town Councils are responsible for ensuring a risk assessment is completed for the tasks undertaken under the project. Significant findings from the risk assessment should be recorded and communicated to the volunteer workers.
This table outlines common hazards associated with the activity undertaken within the Highways together project and outlines some general control measures that are to be considered. The list is not exhaustive and should be reviewed against the site and specific project in order to identify all significant hazards associated with the individual project and to determine the most suitable level of control.

- RNLI Water Safety Session:
There is no charge from the RNLI whose volunteer runs the session. The Council will just need to find a suitable venue (e.g. Village Hall) and promote the event (e.g. to the local school, pre-school and on their website and email distribution list).
The session is interesting and informative and delivered in a fun way that was easy for children to understand; they have a chance to sit in a dinghy and also dress up as a lifeboat man including the helmet and wellies!
