With more than 1.5 million kilometres of underground infrastructure in the UK, a substantial amount of which is not documented, the risk of unintentional damage to underground electrical services by contractors is always present.
Regardless of whether you’re installing a simple fence or carrying out groundworks for a major development, the risk of discovering uncharted power cables should always be considered, however much you plan and prepare. In fact, power cable strikes have leapt by more than 20% since lockdown began (Construction Enquirer) and with the incidence of cable strike growing, it’s essential to have a plan of action to deal with it if it does happen.
