Pipeline Trench Shoring

Bracing the walls of a pipeline trench to prevent collapse is what trench shoring is all about. Shoring trenches is a large part of pipeline construction. As such, shoring safely is one of the most important components of excavation. Why? According to OSHA, trenching is one of the most dangerous types of construction work, causing over 40 deaths per year and seriously injuring many more, in what could otherwise be preventable situations.

So what can be done to avoid becoming part of this unfortunate construction statistic from lack of, or poor trench shoring techniques? First and foremost, one must be competent to know and recognize the different types of soil (also known as dirt, loam, earth, dust or mud) prevalent throughout new construction sites, especially in Southern California.
