|Publication Date:||1 December 2008|
This standard applies to all persons who plan or carry out ground disturbance work on Network Rail infrastructure.
It applies to all works and activities to be carried out on or around those buried services located on Network Rail owned infrastructure where the ground provides containment or forms a significant part of the support given to that particular buried service.
To mitigate the risk of damage to and danger from buried services, a standard and consistent method of planning a safe system of work and then working safely with these assets when on site is necessary.
Buried services are widespread on Network Rail owned infrastructure. These assets can pose a risk of danger to personnel and also suffer damage if handled incorrectly.
This standard is one of a suite of documents that support the policy shown in NR/L1/AMG/1010, Policy on working safely in the vicinity of buried services. Other standards in the suite are NR/L2/AMG/1020 and NR/L2/AMG/1040.
