Welcome to the Trench Safety Ohio resource page. Trenching and excavating can be dangerous work, but injuries and fatalities associated with this work are preventable.
BWC’s trench safety campaign is focused on increasing awareness of the hazards of working in trenches and promoting safe trenching work practices. The campaign provides useful information on major safety factors in trenching and excavation operations, and proactive safety strategies to prevent injuries and fatalities. The Trench Safety Ohio website provides access to strategies, tools, tips, techniques, and training resources.
Important: The deadline for employers to submit Trench Safety Grant applications for fiscal year 2020 is March 31, 2020. Details for future applications and deadlines will be announced at a later date.
