MIOSHA Launching Trench and Excavation Safety Campaign

Michigan is launching a safety campaign to reduce excavation and trench accidents.

Since 2013, seven workers have died from cave-ins or trench collapse accidents in Michigan according to the state.

Official Orlene Hawks says the enforcement and education campaign will reach out to business and workers.

They will be going over the dangers of these types of operations.

The program will also go over current requirements and safety procedures.
