Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 68342.015Event: 10/01/2014Two Employees Are Killed When Trench Collapses
At approximately 3:45 p.m. on October 1, 2014, Employee #1 was using a hose attached to a sump/muck pump to suction mud and water from the floor of an 11 to 13 foot deep unprotected trench in the rear yard of the home. Employee #2, a foreman was working in front of the residential home. While working at the floor of an unprotected trench which was approximately 45 feet long by 4 feet wide by 11 to 12 feet deep, the West wall of the trench collapsed burying Employee #1. The foreman was alerted by another worker of an emergency. The Foreman, responding to worker calls for help, accessed the trench and a secondary collapse of the West wall buried the foreman. Both the Employee #1 and Employee #2 suffered from mechanical asphyxia as a result of dirt collapsing on top of them and were killed.
