Looks like there’s more interest in preventing trench collapses and fatalities than we thought. Our post last week on this subject became one of our most popular in many a moon! Knowing that so many people care about trench worker safety makes us feel fantastic.
To help satisfy your interest (and to make the guys in the trenches safer, let’s not forget that), we’ve compiled another roundup of trench collapse resources from around the Internet.

This is a good employee poster or handout about the dangers of trench collapses and how to avoid being killed in one.
We’d also like to thank CPWR for tipping us off to this Occupational Safety and Health Administration video on preventing trench collapses in trenches. If you can’t see it here, watch it here.
Remember, we’ll be exhibiting the Ductile Iron Safety Blade, Ductile Iron Ring Saw Safety Blade and Carbide Chunk Blade in Booth 3087 at the American Water Works Association‘s ACE13 conference in Denver, CO from June 9 to 12! See our press release for details.
