LAS VEGAS MARKET 2020!

and it was a BLAST! They made great connections with new furniture, lighting, and

decor vendors and hopefully we will begin to be doing more furniture with our clients

here at MCD. Here are some highlights from their time at market.

TOOLBOX TIP: TRENCH SAFETY


When you dig a trench or an excavation, you’re creating unstable space. The walls of

a trench are under extreme pressure since they are no longer supported by the dirt

that’s been removed. The dangers of trenching and excavating includes falls, falling

object, cave-ins, hazardous atmospheres, and working around heavy machinery.

Trench collapses present a serious risk and can happen without warning. Never enter

an unprotected trench! Before you enter a trench, make sure you know the answers to

these questions:

- What type of soil are you working with?

- Is there a competent person?

- What type of protective system should be used?

- Is there a hazardous atmosphere, for example fumes from equipment?

- Have all the necessary daily inspections occured?

- What are the methods of getting in and out of trench?

- Have utilities been located and identified?

Falling into a trench can be fatal. Sometimes people forget to consider fall protection

around trenches because they are working at ground level. But the bottom of the

trench may be many feet lower than ground level. Protection like gaurdrails may be

required.
