Make Utility Surveys Mandatory – The cost of a utility strike is not just financial

The latest USAG (Utility Strike Avoidance Group) have released their 2019 damages Report reports that  the most utility strikes have taken place in the month of July since 2013. The data compiled last year has shown it is the same for 2019 and whilst there is an increase in total Utility Strikes across the year, we are also seeing a significant increase in the number of enquiries being submitted to USAG. Some of the top causes for utility strikes this year were:

1) Inadequate assessment of works

2) Assets not on relevant plans and lastly

3) Insufficient competencies
