Guest: Steve Biasi, Deputy Regional Administrator There have been a number trench fatalities in Colorado this year.  In 2021 there were 7 trenching fatalities in Colorado and so far in 2022 there have been 21 deaths.  Trenching and excavation work can be dangerous without proper shoring or sloping.  Anything five feet or deeper requires sloping or a shield system.  OSHA in partnership with the North American Excavation Shoring Association  to host Colorado Trench Safety Summit October 5 at the Adams County Fairgrounds in Brighton.
