The safety in pipeline construction using Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) is the foremost issue considered in the trenchless construction. Based on working experience and the new development of trenchless technologies, the authors discuss the safety of pipeline construction using HDD, including existing pipeline detecting, HDD drill rigs, construction technology and construction management on safety of the staff, borehole conditions and damage to the existing utilities. The authors put forward some opinions and suggestions about safety during pipeline construction using HDD as well.
