In addition to being National Safety Month, June is also Trench Safety Month. Throughout the month, the National Utility Contractors Association (NUCA) educates the public and non-NUCA industry companies about the importance of job site safety for employees who work underground or in and around trenches.
“In this industry, the safety of our employees on the job site is our top priority,” remarked Doug Carlson, NUCA CEO. “Making this June “Trench Safety Month” emphasizes the valuable training and experiences our member’s employees are gaining through the Trench Safety Stand Down week also held annually in June by our members.” For training and safety information, visit the NUCA website:
