OSHA to Raise Awareness about Trench Safety in Ohio and Illinois


In early April, OSHA joined industry and labor leaders, and safety professionals for trench safety events in Warren, Ohio, and the Chicago area. Participants received presentations on soil mechanics, shoring equipment, and trench safety regulations. Every year, workers are seriously and fatally injured from trench collapses, often because the trenches are improperly sloped, shored, or shielded. For more information on trenching hazards and solutions, see OSHA’s trenching and excavation webpage.
