The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health requires construction company owners to appoint a competent person to conduct thorough manual and visual tests of the soil in which trenches are excavated. This person must then determine what type of protection is required to prevent cave-ins. Fatal construction workers accidents can occur if trench walls are not adequately supported.

A recent study points to utility work being one of these fields.
