Construction sites are bustling with potential hazards, and one of the trickiest hazards to handle is trenching. If not done right, being down in a trench can turn into a serious risk, with the looming threat of cave-ins and air quality issues. That's why it's important to make sure you know the ropes when it comes to trenching and shoring. This knowledge isn't just a nicety; it's your ticket to getting in and out of that trench as quickly and safely as possible. Nobody wants to get stuck, injured or worse.
