Trench Safety Stand Down
Sponsored by NUCA and NAXSA
The 2018 Trench Safety Stand Down will be held between June 18-23
The 2018 Trench Safety Stand Down is officially endorsed by OSHA and NUCA’s Trench Safety Stand Down is also sponsored by the Safety Ambassadors Club.
How to Conduct a Safety Stand Down:
Companies will conduct a Trench Safety Stand Down by taking a break to have a toolbox talk or another safety activity to draw attention to the specific hazards related to working in and around trenches/excavations. We ask that companies provide feedback about their Stand Down, such as when it was held, how many workers participated, how you shared information with employees. NUCA will collect the information, publicize the overall total number of participants, and publish the names of the companies that held a Trench Safety Stand Down. You can find all the appropriate documentation below in TSSD Forms.
