We commonly hear of workers being trapped or injured while engaging in trench work. The biggest risk involved in trench work is that of the trench collapsing.

Before engaging in trench work these risks should be taken into account. Workers should never engage in trench work unless supervised or in the presence of a co-worker who can raise the alarm if something goes wrong.
