U.S. Department of Labor Cites Nebraska Excavating Company After Two Employees Injured in Trench Collapse
LINCOLN, NE–The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has cited T.H. Construction Co. after two employees suffered serious injuries when a trench collapsed at a construction site in Lincoln, Nebraska. OSHA proposed penalties of $106,078 for one willful violation of its trench safety standards.
If you have an open trench OSHA is required to stop and do an inspection. Make sure your workers know what to say and what to do should a compliance officer walk on the job. If you are working on a job that has an open trench you can be inspected. Once a compliance officer is on the job they can do targeted inspection of only the trench or a comprehensive inspection and look at the entire project.
