Tip Sheet: 6 Questions to Ask to Ensure a Successful Underground Inventory

Foreign Occupant Trespass in Underground Conduit

Owners may not realize the risks that trespassers pose on their underground real estate. From safety hazards, to liability and bad practices, trespass can consequently destruct underground spaces. Watch the video to learn how.

Structural Damage in Underground Facilities

Vault damage may include structural damage, contaminating environmental hazards, & a void of manufacturer’s warranties—just to name a few. The consequences of damage reach far beyond the underground space, directly affecting financial, operations, and management departments. Find out more in the video.

Violations in Manholes and Handholes

While violations accrue from several factors (damage, trespass, wear-and-tear), many vault owners are surprised to learn that a hefty amount of violations are from their own contractors. Watch the video to learn about the many sources of violations in underground spaces.

Safety and Access in Underground Conduit Vaults

Safety and access go hand-in-hand. They either work against each other, causing worker inaccessibility and liability, or they can work together, promoting efficient and serviceable spaces. Watch the video to learn how to improve both safety and access.
