Causes of Trench Cave-Ins
Trench cave-ins can happen for a number of reasons, including failure to:
- Shore, brace, or slope walls and faces of excavation sites.
- Plan for vibrations, such as those from highways or railroads, that can cause cave-ins on a job site.
- Correctly classify the types of soil being excavated.
