Dial Before You Dig is a proud sponsor of the inaugural Oceania Damage Prevention Conference, taking place from 20th-23rd August 2018 on the Gold Coast.

The conference will educate stakeholders on damage prevention and safe excavation, showcasing best practice examples and learnings from across the globe. Attendees will come away with practical tools and strategies they can implement in their workplace and community following the conference.

The Dial Before You Dig Vic/Tas team are excited to be sponsoring a study tour, offering Members the opportunity to win conference travel package worth $2,500. Dial Before You Dig Vic/Tas will cover airfares departing from Melbourne or Hobart, accommodation for 2 nights, all-inclusive conference tickets plus an organised site tour of a local civil project.

Congratulations to the following Members who submitted case studies outlining a significant asset strike they were involved with:

  • Andrew Bambridge – Tas Gas Networks
  • Salvatore Giuntalia – Downer Group
  • Simon Sheahan – Auswide Civil & Plumbing
  • Adam Fothergill – Zinfra
