About this event

There is no doubt that 2020 will be remembered for years to come. The emergence of COVID-19 gave us some of the most uncertain times any of us will have ever experienced including disruption to construction and major infrastructure projects.

Despite so many things having to stop, the education and activity around safe digging continued with a record 3.1 million searches made using LSBUD, this means that more than 77% of all works now begin with a LSBUD enquiry.

With the boom in projects only just beginning as the country navigates its way out of the events of the past year we take a look at the data we gathered in 2020 during the enquiry process. We provide analysis on what this tells us about the industry and the areas of focus we need to ensure that those on the tools go home safe at the end of each day and that the services that are so important to everyday lives continue uninterrupted by damage to utility owned cables and pipes.
