CES Safety Talks About Trenching & Excavation Safety

It is CES goal to provide a workplace free of recognized hazards that may cause serious injury or death. Trenching and excavating can be one of these hazards when not complying with the trenching and excavation requirements of 29 CFR 1926.651 and 1926.652 or comparable OSHA-approved state plan requirements. Two workers are killed every month in trench collapses. An excavation is any man-made cut, cavity, trench, or depression in an earth surface formed by earth removal. A trench is a narrow excavation (in relation to its length) made below the surface of the ground. In general, the depth is greater than the width in a trench excavation, however, the width of a trench (measured at the bottom) is not greater then 15 feet.

  • Know where underground utilities are located before digging.
  • Test for atmospheric hazards such as low oxygen, hazardous fumes and toxic gases when > 4 feet deep.
  • Inspect trenches at the start of each shift.
  • Inspect trenches following a rainstorm or other water intrusion.
  • Do not work under suspended or raised loads and materials.
  • Inspect trenches after any occurrence that could have changed conditions in the trench.
