The Underground and Utility Industry


Visit The New Underground and Utility Division at Walters Wholesale Electric Co.

The Underground and Utility industry is a world that many don’t know much about but it is so essential to the success of the overall construction process. Each day, construction workers who install cable, electrical, phone, water, or sewage utilities must deal with these dangers while trying to complete their jobs. By using top notch tools and the proper techniques, these dangers can be reduced.

There are a number of hazards associated with this type of work including:

  • Cave-ins
  • Confined spaces
  • Contact with overhead high voltage lines
  • Moving mechanical parts that can be dangerous to workers
  • Unguarded tools and equipment
