    The only thing I can think of is to protect them from being driven over as the gravel can damage them fairly easily.

    From what I have seen there aren't any special rules for using an extension cord in a substation. Use of GFCI would be recommended depending on the equipment you are using.

    In the United States we usually follow OSHA and NFPA for matters like this. You might find these links helpful:
