TRENCHLESS EXCAVATION WORK
Maintenance of electrical networks or underground pipe systems, replacement or repair of existing underground infrastructures… most construction work in urban environments have some degree of risk of injury.
Today, companies such as Colas Switzerland specialize in trenchless excavation which enables work to be carried out without having to open up the street. However, some constraints exist which are inherent to the profession that can represent a real risk for people working on site.
For teams working on drilling or blasting, high noise levels can make communication diffi cult. The problem becomes greater when visibility is limited. It is essential that the operators be able to coordinate their positions so that complete accuracy is maintained.
The Colas Suisse teams selected the VOK-ENG communication system from VOKKERO™ to overcome all these issues.
