July and Aug.: Inspection Blitz on Trenches


In July and Aug. 2015, MOL inspectors will visit various construction projects where trenches are being excavated, checking for hazards that could result in worker injuries or death. In particular, inspectors will focus on:

  • Trench work notification to the MOL
  • Trench wall support
  • Identification, location and marking of utilities before work is undertaken
  • Measures to prevent slips, trips and falls by workers.
