Dial Before You Dig NSW/ACT exists to lessen the risk of damage to our members' underground assets.

The classic Dial Before You Dig service at is the best-known way we do this.

There are other innovative ways in which Dial Before You Dig protects our members from damage.

We regularly hold seminars to improve skills in the excavation, engineering and construction industries.

This week was the launch of a new initiative to improve asset protection.

A Locator Steering Committee had its first meeting in Parramatta.

The Steering Committee is a collaboration between utilities, authorities, local Government and industry associations for civil construction and asset location to improve the quality of utility location in New South Wales.

The Steering Committee is an initiative of Dial Before You Dig NSW/ACT and the Civil Contractors Fedation of NSW.

More information on the work of the Committee will appear as the project unfolds.
