When it's a OSHA violation ... and when it's not
from Equipment World
Take a look at the following photo and see if you can name the OSHA trench safety violations. There's a man in the trench — look closely, because you can barely see him. Then, there are the eight men surrounding the newly excavated hole, putting pressure on the excavation face. There's no sloping, shielding or shoring — nothing to hold the soil back if it ever started to move. There's also no OSHA violation.
