Working in trenches and excavations is one of the most dangerous types of construction work out there. If a cave-in occurs and a worker is buried, even partially, there is a very good chance that the worker will be seriously or fatally injured. That is the principal reason that OSHA and Cal-OSHA regulations require construction contractors to designate a competent person to oversee the work and ensure that all excavations are in compliance with the relevant regulations.
