Where you going to work in that grave? The company I work for does about 10 sewer and water laterals a week. They did that amount for about 12 years with no trench box, with no mishaps. 2 years ago got pinched by Osha. Now it's trench box all the time, if caught not using it, you get a pink slip.
Between 2011 and 2015, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 94 American workers were killed in trench collapses. In 2016, 23 U.S. workers died and 12 were injured in collapses. What can be done?
