Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 170629927 Event: 04/03/2001Employee Injured In Trench Cave-In
On April 3, 2001, a serious injury accident occurred in Tulare, California. Employee #1, a laborer, had been sent to the location to help locate some 4-inch conduit that had been laid in an adjoining trench by P & G Communications, Inc. The trench in question was not a job being done by P & G, but an Edison Electric crew was going to tie into the conduit that had been laid by P & G. Employee #1 entered the trench with a probe to locate the conduit. The trench ranged from 2 feet to 8 feet wide by 2 feet to 10 feet in depth. The trench was not shored, and as Employee #1 probed for the conduit, part of the trench caved in. Employee #1 suffered broken ribs in the accident and was taken to Tulare District Hospital for emergency treatment.
