A permit to break ground or as it’s more commonly know as, a permit to dig is required when breaking ground (e.g. excavating by hand, mechanical excavation, digging for post holes, or even knocking in kerb pins). This is especially important when working near live services. To supplement the permit, we recommend that you obtain up to date service drawings and scan the area using a CAT scanner or Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) to ensure you accurately locate the services. More in information about safe excavating can be found on the HSE website:
