The National Utility Contractors Association is hosting the seventh annual Trench Safety Stand Down June 20-24. The event aims to raise awareness of trenching and excavation hazards as well as promote safe controls. The organization is providing free resources and encourages involvement from businesses in the utility, residential and highway construction, and plumbing industries.
In July, OSHA unveiled a free sticker intended to remind workers of the three primary protective systems:
  • Sloping (or benching). Cutting back the trench wall at an angle inclined away from the excavation.
  • Shoring. Installing aluminum hydraulics or other types of supports to prevent cave-ins.
  • Shielding. Using trench boxes or other supports to prevent cave-ins.
AGC Data Digest
Construction employment, seasonally adjusted, totaled 7,664,000 in May, an increase of 36,000 from April and 283,000 (3.8%) year-over-year (y/y) from May 2021, according to AGC’s analysis of data the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) posted today. Residential construction employment, comprising residential building and specialty trade contractors, rose by 16,700 in May and 128,000 (4.2%) y/y. Nonresidential construction employment—at building, specialty trades, and heavy and civil engineering construction firms—climbed by 19,400 for the month and 154,900 (3.6%) y/y. 

Transportation officials in New Mexico and Texas are discussing possible routes for a new freight corridor linking the two states under a federal interstate designation for the project. The roadway would ultimately form part of the upgraded Ports-to-Plains Corridor.
