Trench Rescue: Operations Equipment List Mobile App

It is important to make sure contacts have been made prior to starting to dig a trench. For example, on all of the trenches, the spoil pile (the removed dirt) needs to be 2’ from the lip of the trench. The open trench needs to be properly secured, especially while unattended. If proper steps are not taken prior to digging trenches, there may be a trench collapse or other hazards that may put workers at risk of injury.

That is why the Trench Rescue: Operations Equipment List mobile app was developed to ensure that excavation teams are prepared in advance execute and emergency rescue. The app includes a detailed trench rescue equipment checklist that can be used to see if the trench was prepared properly in no time.

This app can be useful for trench safety training and rescue training. The trench rescue equipment checklist app can also be edited to include more information that your team may find helpful.
