Excavation and trenching are among the most hazardous construction operations. OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health Administration) defines an excavation as any man-made cut, cavity, trench, or depression in the earth’s surface formed by earth removal. A trench is defined as a narrow underground excavation that is deeper than it is wide, and is no wider than 15 feet (4.5 meters). Here at Garrett Excavation we are committed. Committed means taking the time to safely doing the task at hand, investing in our employees with safety training, training employees to be able to identify hazards on jobs, asking questions, and daily safety meetings over any concerns one might have. Garrett Excavation goal is to have zero lost time accidents, continuous improvement toward safety, to meet every standard to keep workers safe, and to send all of our workers home safe every day.
