Trench Safety - Joe Sellers and Jeremy Bennett, Kokosing Construction, will present at our Wednesday June 17 meeting

Updated on Monday, March 23rd, 2020 @ 4:01pm

Part of Joe and Jeremy’s presentation includes Jeremy’s own story of a trench collapse and his being rescued from the cave-in.  More often than not, trench collapses result in recovery and not rescue operations.  This should be a very interesting presentation.

The week of June 15 – 19 will be OSHA’s 5th annual National Trench Safety Stand-Down

What is a Safety Stand Down?
A Safety Stand Down presents the opportunity for employers to talk directly to employees and others about safety. These Stand Downs will focus on trench & excavation hazards and reinforce the importance of using trench protective systems and protecting workers from trenching hazards.

Stand Down Goals
The goal is to reach out to the many workers who work in and around trenches and excavations to provide them with information about current excavation requirements and safety procedures for working in trenches. By reaching as many workers as possible we can reduce the number of fatalities and serious injuries that occur each year in our industry, and make others, such as municipal and industry workers who are also exposed, aware of these serious hazards.
