Twenty percent of workplace fatalities in the US involve construction workers, but their chances of getting killed on the job more than double when they're working in a trench. An average of two employees are killed every month when the trench they're working in collapses on them.

But many of these deaths and thousands of injuries can be prevented. Employees need to understand the hazards that can be encountered in trenching work as well as the OSHA regulations and safe work practices that can prevent accidents from occurring.
