The Importance of Safety When Excavating

Featured Image for The Importance of Safety When Excavating

During our excavation projects, one of our main priorities is ensuring the safety of both our crew and you, our customer. To keep you safe, we ask that you do not enter any trenches that may be on your property, as it can be extremely dangerous.

For our crews, we have several safety precautions in use to try to decrease the risk of injury on the job.

  • Thorough planning of all projects.
  • Protective systems, such as sloping, shoring, and shielding.
  • Safe access and egress to all excavations, as required by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
  • All workers are informed of all possible safety hazards and how to avoid them.
