The dangers posed by trench stability assessment and excavation failures are significant, as they can occur suddenly, giving workers little time to escape harm and potentially causing property damage or fatalities. Rapid excavation collapse speeds only amplify the risks involved, making it crucial to have adequate measures in place to handle potential hazards.

BHM Geotechnical Engineering provides a range of solutions to address the potential impacts of earthwork excavations on adjacent structures and minimise occupational health and safety risks. In particular, their Trench Stability Assessment services in Sydney offer expert advice on earthwork approaches, impact minimisation techniques, and systematic excavation methods.

While the need for such precautions may vary depending on the excavation type, more dangerous excavations like trenches, shafts, and tunnels require particular care. Excavation work must not commence until proper measures have been taken to prevent structural damage or collapse, any any excavation below the footing level of a structure poses a potential threat to its stability.

BHM’s team of experts can design control measures based on the soil type, moisture content, and proposed excavation depth to ensure safe excavation practices are implemented. Their Trench Stability Assessment services are tailored to handle excavation and trench stability assessments with efficiency and precision, ensuring a secure work environment for all stakeholders involved.
