If you use a vacuum base its a good idea to have a safety cable or chain tied off to something stout that can hang on to thedrill if it comes loose. Not as big a danger once the bit is a couple inches in, but until then it can be risky. Same goes for may drills, tie them off.

I love the TWANGG sound when I cut a pre stressed cable in a slab . When the maintance Guy said " 'WHATS THAT ? " I said " Kid playing a guitar "
Hey Tool aint it a great sound. Did one many years ago. Mind you had the structural Engineer standing there with us advising us on location of all cables and we still got one. He took off like lightning when it went. So much for professional Engineers hey.............!!!
When they added more washrooms to the MTS Center after the NHL and Winnipeg Jets came back to Winnipeg, all the plumbing holes were x-rayed before coring, to make sure that they did not hit anything in the concrete like rebar or embedded electrical conduit.
There are now doing a 3rd set of washroom improvements 3 years later and I am sure there will be more x-rays or ground radar as part of contract requirements.
Thanks MBHYDRO x-ray is a new one I hadn't heard of, at least downunder. Don't think anyone has this kit here. As far as GPR is concerned it is still not 100%. Operators can call it wrong too. And some people say our life is easy. I would love to see the ordinary Joe do all of what we do to prevent harm, injury and damage. I guess it all comes about from being a "PRO" in our trade but then again we are all human and can still make mistakes too..............!!!!
Hey Tony AFM, have you heard of X-Ray being used down here????????????????
