||Third party damage to underground services of all types continues to be a source of danger and financial loss to workers, members of the public, utility companies and contractors. When the underground service is a Major Accident Hazard Pipeline (MAHP) such as a high-pressure gas main or a petrochemical pipeline then the consequences of a rupture can be devastating to people and the environment. This report highlights the underlying issues that contributed to a third party MAHP infringement in February 2007, detailing the factors that contributed to that incident.
