Product Description:

OSHA and NIOSH report that there are more than 1,000 trench collapses each year across the United States. In addition, there are between 50-100 fatalities annually as the

result of a trench collapse. So what exactly is a trench? Simply put, a trench is defined as a long ditch. Unlike an excavation, trenches are typically deeper than its width.

Trenches are commonly dug to install utilities or to pour foundations for a building

 

Trench collapses are extremely dangerous and are often deadly. Soil can weigh in excess of 100 pounds per cubic foot and can have a crushing and asphyxiation affect on

anyone that is in the path of a collapsing trench. Additionally, many trenches contain hazardous atmospheres and utilities that can pose additional threats to workers and

responding emergency personnel. While federal law requires that a trench be properly secured (or shored) if there is work to be performed below ground, contractors and

workers often ignore these safety measures.

 

The results can be catastrophic.

One of the most potentially challenging and multidiscipline incidents fire service personnel may face is Trench Rescue.  It is a dynamic environment that tends

to be physically and mentally challenging due to the duration and unpredictable environment.

Not only must the mechanical issues of stabilization be considered, but patients may also be facing traumatic injuries, hypothermia or experiencing the often

 forgotten complications of Crush Syndrome.
