Safety Shovel Specifications
Excavation Spotters Shovel
Prevent Harmful Asset Strikes
1. General System Features
The Safety Shovel is designed to be a supportive tool to protect workers from harmful events that cause human and infrastructure risk.
Although best endeavours try to prevent infrastructure and human harm, inaccurate records cause risk that needs to be minimalized.
The Safety Shovel provides the ideal real-time detection of metal and power subsurface. It allows for detecting metallic objects including cables, pipes (water, gas, electric etc.) and electrified cables under the ground.
This tool is ideal for the prevention of harmful asset strikes.
