Trench Safety Stand Down Week is June 14-18!
🚧 𝐓𝐫𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐡 𝐒𝐚𝐟𝐞𝐭𝐲 𝐒𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐃𝐨𝐰𝐧 𝐖𝐞𝐞𝐤 𝐢𝐬 𝐉𝐮𝐧𝐞 𝟏𝟒-𝟏𝟖!
Even with the introduction of new equipment and strict enforcement of OSHA standards, many workers die each year and many more are seriously injured in trench accidents. The purpose of Trench Safety Stand-Down week is to reinforce the importance of using trench protective systems and protect workers from trenching hazards.
This #TrenchSafetyMonth be sure to incorporate these tips in your day-to-day operations to prevent trench collapses and save lives:
- Slope or bench trench walls
- Shore trench walls with supports, or
- Shield trench walls with trench boxes
