Often it is not until a crisis is encountered that utilities discover water valve problems preventing timely shutdowns and resulting in excessive water loss, damage to infrastructure and personal property. This in turn could lead to potential liability claims for damage by a third party.
Personal injury is also common with operators applying brute force to manually move corroded/seized water valves or simply stiff valves. Significant lost time injuries occur each year as a result of this practice. OH&S professionals are increasingly looking for proactive solutions to this on-going problem.
Detection Services can provide effective valve management solutions, including mechanical valve exercising, valve condition assessment, and database generation of valve health/location/maintenance history.
