Safety alert: Air excavation

13 Jul 2021


In June the operator of an AirVac system was harmed when his leg was sucked into the live unit. The operator was excavating using an extension pipe, when the AirVac became blocked. He placed the extension pipe on the ground and left it running to clear itself. The operator continued other work in close proximity to the still running AirVac . When the blockage cleared the operators leg was pulled into the pipe. The worker has a fractured foot and is off work for a minimum of two months.
