“Trench deaths have more than doubled nationwide since last year – an alarming and unacceptable trend that must be halted,” said Dr. David Michaels, assistant secretary of labor for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, in a press release. “There is no excuse. These fatalities are completely preventable by complying with OSHA standards that every construction contractor should know.”
Deaths and injuries relating to trenching are easily preventable however as we have seen over the year companies time and time again do not put employee’s safety first.
Companies need to ensure that proper procedures are in place on site each and every day. Making use of a JhA (Job Hazard Analysis) or Job Safety Inspection forms will ensure that OSHA regulations are followed and that employees are safe.
