Trench Safety

Trenches and excavations are among the most hazardous operations in construction. Cave-ins pose the greatest risk, and according to OSHA, they cause dozens of fatalities and hundreds of injuries each year. Despite the high levels of risk, trenching accidents are almost always preventable with proper soil classification, trench safety precautions, and employee training.

Let Scott Environmental manage your trench safety risk by performing an onsite soil classification and characterization. Not all soils are the same, and understanding a soil’s composition is critical to designing a safe trench work environment.
