 >  Prevent excavation damage
Discussion > Talk with your colleagues about it!
  • Excavation work is often carried out while a KLIC-report has not been made;
  • I think pre-puncturing with a shovel is over the top. Our crane operator can do that using his crane.

In the Netherlands, there are over 1.7 million kilometres of water pipes, data traffic cables, electricity cables, gas and oil pipes lying below ground level. In 2016, there were 265 incidents of excavation damage to third parties. These damages could have been prevented. There is one KLIC-report process that applies to everyone within Heijmans.
