Excavating and trenching are among the most hazardous of construction operations. The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) defines an excavation as any man-made cut, cavity, trench, or depression in the earth’s surface formed by earth removal. OSHA also defines a trench as a narrow underground excavation that is deeper than it is wide, and is no wider than 15 feet (4.5 meters).
