A trench is defined as a narrow excavation (in relation to its length) made below the surface of the ground. In general, the depth of a trench is greater than its width, but the width of a trench (measured at the bottom) is not greater than 15 feet (4.6 m). What are the dangers of trenching and excavation operations?

Development and implementation of procedures to make an entry into a trench or excavation rescue area b.
The Geotechnical Engineering Office (GEO) of the Civil Engineering Department (CED) recently carried out a study on failures of trench excavations in Hong Kong. The study included a review of known past failures of trench excavations, and also the current technical standards and statutory requirements for trench excavations. The study has

Excavation Shoring: Conventional soldier piles with tieback anchors/internal bracing, soil nailing, or composite soil nailing shoring systems appear feasible from a geotechnical standpoint to support excavation required to construct the below grade portions of the building.
Excavation and Trenching - Hazards and how to control them
The requirements are as follows: - For each foot of trench depth, the ratio of slope measured from the trench edge at ground height must be: Soil Type A – ¾ to 1 (53°) Soil Type B – 1 to 1 (45°) Soil Type C – 1 ½ to 1 (34°) Shoring Shoring is one of the most common used methods of worker protection.
Hydraulic shoring: This is a prefabricated strut and/or wale system manufactured of aluminum or steel. Hydraulic shoring provides a critical safety advantage over timber shoring because workers do not have to enter the trench to install or remove hydraulic shoring (see Figure 2). Hydraulic shoring should be checked at least once per shift for ...
CALIFORNIA TRENCHING AND SHORING MANUAL A Geotechnical Engineer shallprepare soils reports and supplemental geotechnical data. Any excavation in which there is a potential hazard of cave-in or moving ground will require a protective earth retaining plant Section 5-1.02 of Standard Specifications provides that the Contractor furnish plans for ...
Stable sidewalls are a requirement for all trench construction. Proper slopes for unbraced walls or appropriate bracing and shoring with sheeting or shields for vertical walls are required. As sheeting and shoring are removed, compaction of material in the void space must proceed with the removal of supports. Geotextiles,
Shoring – (Shoring System) a structure such as metal hydraulic, mechanical or timber shoring system that supports the sides of an excavation and which is designed to prevent cave-ins. Sloping – (Sloping System) a method of protecting employees from cave-ins by excavating to form sides
