Safety in the Trenches Mobile App
Each year, between 100 and 400 workers die, and several thousand more are seriously injured in trench and excavation cave-ins.
How does it work?
Most are men, between 20 and 30 years of age, and have had no excavation safety training. Ironically, 79 percent of the trenches are relatively shallow, only between 5- and 15-feet deep. If construction companies, utilities and others will follow the federal OSHA Standards and take four relatively simple steps provide in the Safety in the Trenches mobile app, they could prevent most of these deaths and serious injuries.
