Trench Safety Prevent Accidents

May 23, 2022 | Trench Boxes

Trench Safety Prevent Accidents | Trench collapses are unfortunately still happening. But why? It is an unnecessary risk to omit proper trench safety protocols and recommendations from OSHA when operating in a trench. Without the use of trench safety equipment, including trench boxes and other trench shoring, your workers are at risk every time they dig and work underground. Recent news headlines have been disheartening, and left local first responders, a county sheriff’s office, and volunteer fire departments scrambling to save lives after trench collapses.

The Critical Importance of Using Trench Safety Prevent Accidents

Last week, the town of Bethel, CT had a scare when a worker was trapped in a trench requiring several fire departments two and a half hours to rescue him as he was buried up to his chin in dirt. Also in the news last week, in Brevard County, FL one construction worker was rescued after three hours. Resources from twenty-nine units responded to save him from a trench collapse when water began filling the hole burying him neck deep.  Unfortunately, in Charolette County, FL, two construction workers putting in a water pipe when a trench collapsed were killed. Heartbreaking news for any family member or coworker to hear. These accidents serve as reminders that trench safety protocols are put in place to protect lives.
