Each year employees are killed while working in and around excavations and trenches. Cave-ins are the leading hazard when working within a trench, therefore, employers should take the appropriate protective measures to provide for the safety of those employees required to work in and around excavations and trenches.
This presentation is designed to provide individuals with information on related OSHA regulations as well as methods to ensure the safety of those who may enter or work around excavations and trenches.
This presentation is not a substitute for any of the provisions of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 or for any standards issued by the U.S. Department of Labor.
