Morrison Utility Services (MUS) has unveiled a new, patented ‘multi-utility stencil’ that will provide a template for safer, clearer and more consistent survey marking to identify underground utilities in the public highway.
The stencil provides an innovative solution to manually spray-painted markings used to identify underground utilities that can be untidy, unclear and inaccurate. The stencil is being introduced following successful trials on a number of major contracts and will lead to safer working practice and a reduction in customer complaints.
The multi-utility stencil was initially submitted as a proposal via the successful MUS employee innovation programme, Innovate to Improve (i2i).
