Excavation safety starts with Ticket Risk Assessment
Excavations in and around underground utilities can result in damage to gas, electric, communications, water and sewer infrastructure, leading to service disruptions, serious injuries and costly repairs. The US Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) has reported on excavation safety and found that there were 1,630 pipeline incidents caused by third party excavation damage from 1993 to 2012, causing 141 deaths, 440 injuries, and more than USD 350 million in damage.
An improvement in excavation damage prevention is needed. Synergi’s Ticket Risk Assessment solution will provide an insightful view of the potential impacts around a proposed excavation. This solution will be one of the first applications leveraging DNV GL’s digital asset ecosystem. Excavation damage prevention is essential for utilities - the Ticket Risk Assessment application will provide insight to enhance damage prevention efforts during excavations in and around pipelines using predictive analytics.
