Your national voice

At BYDA, our purpose is to promote safe work practices via the provision of the free referral service to reduce:

  • injury to persons
  • damage to property and the environment
  • financial loss and inconvenience to individuals and businesses

We welcome the support from our members and stakeholders to continually provide value within the asset protection industry. We aim to deliver our services efficiently and consistently across Australia to achieve our vision of zero damage, zero harm.

Victorian advocacy campaign

Government regulations and legislation can play a significant role in ensuring compliance with safe digging practices. That’s why we are currently in discussion with the Victorian Government on how policy could change to reinforce the need for a Before You Dig Referral to be lodged before starting any work that involves breaking ground.

If you have questions regarding the Victorian advocacy campaign, or you would like to talk more about how BYDA can help improve the protection of underground assets, please contact BYDA.
