At the site of the new jail they are building. A worker was trapped then rescued. I don't know the person's condition.

Trench collapses are very dangerous and result in multiple deaths every year. You can bet OSHA will soon be on site. Many hours of training are spent on trench safety every year in the construction industry. It only takes a trench depth of 36" or so to be deadly under the right circumstances. Hope everyone is OK.

All this rain has to be making the ground unstable.   I've seen all the trench gear the pipeline people are using up 61N to keep it safe. 

 

Glad they made it out.

Generally, a trench collapse indicates the lack of use of a trench box. Which kind of indicates the quality of the contractors operation in general.

 

Yep, that has proven to be just an extra fine engineer/contractor team down there.

Well I think that was proven when they managed to not discover there was a trash dump on the property before building.

 

I've never liked the idea of being forced to take the lowest bidder.   You get what you pay for.
