The 2019 Trench Safety Stand Down is coming up on June 17-21, 2019. OSHA is supporting this event, which is sponsored by the National Utility Contractors Association (NUCA), the North American Excavation Shoring Association (NAXSA), the Trench Shoring and Shielding Association (TSSA), and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). A safety stand down gives employers the opportunity to talk directly to employees and others about safety. Stand downs the week of June should focus on trench and excavation hazards and reinforce the importance of using trench protective systems and protecting workers from trenching hazards. We hope you particpate.
