Course Information

This training course covers the use of the standard C Scope and Radiodetection ‘CAT’ (Cable Avoidance Tool) and ‘Genny’ (Signal Generator) to meet the HSG47 Health and Safety Guideline for avoiding danger from underground services. Each candidate will be instructed in the correct location techniques, methods of detection and limitations of the equipment. For anyone in an organisation who is responsible for tracing underground services prior to excavations....

Who Should Attend?

Cable Avoidance and Service Location (CAT & Genny) training is designed for any person working on the roads, setting out before a build, surveying and any other person excavating an area where pipes or cables may be hidden underground.

Joining Instructions

No previous experience is necessary although some practical experience of groundwork and excavations would be beneficial. Please ensure you bring a hi-vis vest to the course with you, as there will be a practical element to the course out on the surrounding streets locating various cables. It is important that any vehicles see you on the public roads.

Course Agenda

In addition to that, if your delegate numbers are low and you don't have an urgent need to have the training in the next few weeks, then talk to us about setting up an open event near to you on a date of your choosing. The course will definitely go ahead as scheduled and you won't need to travel. Minimum 2 delegates.
