Cable avoidance training website

2 June 2014

We're pleased to have launched a new website at This website aims to provide actionable advice on cable avoidance to contractors.  It's packed with hints and tips for cable location, cable avoidance, and detecting pipework and utilities.  It's not a full-blown training resource, but does provide, in easily accessible and digestible format, lots of  useful information to help contractors.

We've produced the site for our longstanding clients Cable Detection Ltd. Based in Staffordshire, Cable Detection are world leaders in manufacturing, supply, servicing, and training for buried service location equipment. Their product range includes: the EZiCAT range of cable locator tools (you will have seen the distinctive yellow devices on building sites and at roadworks); the EZiDIG cable locator that attaches to diggers; plus signal transmitters, software and accessories for cable avoidance.

The brief was to provide a simple and easily-used website to introduce contractors to the key issues concerning detection, location, and how to avoid causing damage to underground utilities. The information is provided in small chunks with easy navigation. There's no sales pitch on the site, and the advice does not  try to promote Cable Detection's own product range - the objective is to provide good quality advice to help less experienced contractors locate buried cables and pipes safely and easily. Therefore, we have built the site to a simple and bold design for simplkicity and ease of reference. The design renders very well on mobile devices too - that's an important requirement in this case for use on the ground.

Shortly, the website will be enhanced with some video material to provide an even more useful resource.
