Working Safely and Avoiding Utilities with LSBUD

LinesearchbeforeUdig (LSBUD) is a free to use online search service that any individual (“User”) can use to check their works against over 50 asset owners’ (“Members”) utility assets.

These assets include hundreds of thousands of kilometres of underground and overhead pipes and cables in the electricity, gas, high pressure fuel, water and fibre optic networks. The service processes over 1.6 million enquiries per annum- that’s more than one every 20 seconds.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The service can be broken down into three easy steps-

  • You provide a few details of your works and submit a free online enquiry
  • You receive an instant response showing which of our registered asset owners (‘Members’) have assets near your site
  • Our registered asset owners send you the plans of their assets relevant for your area, in accordance with their processes.

LSBUD Members respond in a variety of different ways; some will respond automatically while others may request further information.

Please note that not all asset owners are LSBUD Members and whilst the LSBUD service will help you identify them by supplying contact details etc it is your responsibility to identify and contact all asset owners within your search area.

WHO SHOULD USE THE SERVICE?

The service is designed to be used by anyone that needs to know where utility assets (pipes and cables) are in order to work safely. This includes:

  • Contractors
  • Excavators
  • Fencing installers
  • Groundworkers
  • Private Individuals
  • Farmers
  • Conveyancers

…and many more.

Enquiries can be for simply checking what is there for future requirements or for immediate use, i.e. for an urgent excavation. Works can be of any scale from a highway scheme to simply replacing a garden fence.
