Dial Before You Dig is a free national referral service designed to prevent damage and disruption to the vast pipe and cable networks which provides Australia with essential services.

Dial Before You Dig creates a unique partnership with Australia’s underground asset owners. We act as a single point of contact for you to receive information about underground networks at your excavation site so you don’t have to contact the utility organisations individually. You tell us your dig location and we pass on this referral to the affected asset owners. They then send the information directly to you.

The Dial Before You Dig service is also designed to protect Australia’s excavators.

Utilities Locators, Underground utilities locating companies, Excavators, Electricians, Plumbers, Planners, Developers, Farmers, Land Surveyors, Builders Contractors, Home Owners and Landscapers all over the country are taking advantage of their convenient referral service.

So whether you are a back yard renovator, an individual tradesman or a commercial excavator the potential for injury, personal liability and even death exists every day. Obtaining accurate information about your work site significantly minimises these risks.
