About EUSR Category 1 & 2 Combined: Locate Utility Services & Implement Safe (Digging) Excavating Practices

The safety critical course includes both theoretical and practical assessments in order to increase the knowledge required to safely detect buried utility services as well as increasing the knowledge required for those working to safely excavate and maintain holes and trenches using both hand tools and hand held power tools

These qualifications are often referred to as HSG47 or Cat & Genny training and Safe Digging Practices. Our instruction goes beyond traditional ‘in-house’ sessions and is mapped to both EUSR and National Occupational Standards.
