Employees shall be required to stand away from any vehicle being loaded or unloaded to avoid being struck by any spillage or falling materials.

Soil Excavating and trenching operations Understanding the difference in compressive strength and stability between rock, type A soil, type B soil, and type C soil. also requires that a competent person perform a daily inspection for hazards.
Many companies have adopted a routine of classifying all disturbed soil as Type C. Working in and around excavations or trenches can be hazardous.
Employees shall not work in excavations in which there is accumulated water, or in excavations in which water is accumulating, unless adequate precautions have been taken to protect employees against the hazards posed by water accumulation.possible cave-ins, indications of failure of protective systems or hazardous atmospheresand to then ensure that corrective measures are taken.
