What does a Hydrovac Truck do?
What does a Hydrovac Truck do? One of the safest and most effective excavation methods is Hydrovac Excavation. This is the term used for the excavation
Hydrovac excavation is a form of excavating the ground using high-pressure water to break up the rock and soil, then vacuuming it away into a debris tank. This process utilizes special Hydrovac trucks, making it a safer and more efficient solution for many excavation tasks. Mr. Mike’s Plumbing and Drain Cleaning is one of Calgary’s few plumbing companies offering Hydrovac services.
As opposed to traditional excavation methods like digging, Hydrovac offers a much safer option for workers and in-ground utilities than traditional excavation methods like digging. Hydrovac trucks were designed specifically with the goal of excavating soil without damaging underground utilities or infrastructure, and as a result, most trucks are designed with several safety features.
Like all construction projects, Hydrovac excavation involves hazards and risks. Safety should be a top priority at any job site. It’s important that all Hydrovac workers are properly trained to follow the safety protocols and procedures to minimize the risk of injury or potential workplace accidents.
As with any construction project, hydrovac workers need to be properly trained in all excavation and machinery safety procedures. Only qualified individuals should be allowed to operate any hydrovac equipment, and all personal protective equipment must be worn at the site at all times. When performed properly, hydrovac is a safer, more environmentally friendly alternative to excavation by digging. Strict adherence to all safety protocols, along with proper signage about any risks or dangers, will protect both workers and passersby from potential accidents. Mr. Mike’s Plumbing is proud to employ highly trained excavators with the skills to get the job done safely and effectively.
