OSHA issues five citations for serious violations in connection with Fatal Trench Collapse.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration cited a plumbing and heating company following a deadly trench collapse involving the company’s foreman.  An excavated trench collapsed and killed the worker while he was installing sanitary sewer lines at a residential construction site.  According to safety standards, employers must provide a safe means of egress from a trench, protect workers in a trench from the trench collapsing, and ensure equipment and soil piles are maintained at least 2 feet from a trench. According to OSHA, trenching and excavation standards mandate that all excavations 5 feet or deeper be protected against collapse.  For more information on trenching operation hazards visit www.houstontexaspersonalinjurylawyers.com/trench-injuries.
