Welcome to Trenching and Excavation.
The construction, servicing and/or maintenance of leachate collection systems, gas collection systems and drainage swales, to name a few, often involves working in or around trenches and/or excavations.
Those not involved in the trenching or excavation operation must refrain from entering and maintain a safe distance from all trenches and excavations.
I understand and agree that those not involved in the trenching or excavation operation must refrain from entering and maintain a safe distance from all trenches and excavations.
Hazards commonly associated with trenching and excavation operations typically include but are not limited to:
Remember, landfill gas is heavier than air and will therefore migrate into low-lying areas such as trenches and excavations and will displace oxygen.
When oxygen is displaced in this way, breathing becomes difficult or impossible.
Only trained and qualified persons under the direction of a certified competent person are authorized to perform trenching/excavation activities at this Waste Management landfill facility.
