||Apr. 2007, No.95, p.32-33. Illus.
||Risks related to open excavation work are diverse, including the collapse of adjacent buildings or the accidental burial of workers. Whenever possible, other techniques such as shaft driving or cutting should be used. If trenching cannot be avoided, risks need to be evaluated and safety measures adopted, as described in this article with respect to earthmoving machines, storage, trench support, underground networks, trench marking, personal protective equipment, construction site demarcation and reinforcement of adjacent buildings.
