Promoting Safety with Hydrovac Excavation Trucks in San Diego

The highest priority on any job site is promoting safe working habits and preventing injuries. Hydrovac excavation trucks in San Diego greatly reduce the risk of striking underground utilities, but it’s important to still talk to your team about safety when using any of our equipment.



Everyone on your job site should adhere to these basic safety procedures:

• Be aware of all risks that may occur during the operation of hydrovac excavation trucks, and communicate the procedures put in place to reduce the risk of injury.

• Talk to your team about standard operations and safety procedures. Familiarize yourself with operating manuals to minimize any risks.

• Make sure your team is fully equipped with any personal protective equipment needed. This usually includes hard hats, safety glasses, gloves, hearing protection, heavy-duty boots and face shields.

• Before beginning work, thoroughly inspect both your hydro vac truck and all confined excavation spaces.
