2022 National Trench Safety Stand Down Week

Perry Engineering participated in the annual National Trench Safety Stand Down Week again for 2022. Trenching is one of the most hazardous tasks we perform, and the United States is on track for the highest number of trench deaths in the past 10 years. Each of our utility crews stopped work so that we could talk about working safely in the trench. All of these crews have been extensively trained in trench safety but stopping to talk about safety during the day really emphasizes the importance of it. It also allows the workers a chance to share personal experiences and discuss any problems or needs regarding trench safety.
