Excavation Safety – Think Before You Dig (WWETT Show 2023)

March 23, 2023

There are challenges that come with working underground, but thinking before you dig can help solve problems before they develop. Pre-planning doesn’t automatically mean the project will be more complicated or more expensive. Proper assessment of the soil, consideration of the site conditions, and planning for handling those issues can help the job run more safely and be more cost effective.

Learning Objectives:

1. Realize the value in planning in advance of the work.

2. Recognize hazardous site conditions

3. Understand compliant options for trench protective-systems

4. Differentiate between support systems and shield systems

Speaker: Bruce Magee, Region Product Development Manager at United Rentals Trench Safety
