Health & Safety Benefits
of Vacuum Excavation
Vacuum excavation provides many great safety benefits over traditional, manual excavation techniques.
Reduced manual operation – With its extended reach and attachments, the vacuum excavator equipment means even the hardest to reach services no longer require manual digging. The remote control operation ensures work can be carried out safely, at a distance, with minimal hand vibrations or risks to the operator.
Cleaner excavation – Dust captured inside the tank, 42 air filters and less rubble build up ensures a safe working environment for onsite workers.
