Slide1:  Note from eLCOSH Division of Safety, Florida Department of Labor and Employment Security FDLES/CARE These materials were produced by the Division of Safety, Florida Department of Labor and Employment Security, as part of a special OSHA program to reduce work-related deaths in construction in California, Florida, and Texas. Because Florida's funding for the program - CARE, or Construction Accident Reduction Emphasis - ended in June 2000, the materials will not be updated. The materials should be reviewed yearly for any needed changes.

For example, increases and decreases in moisture content can adversely affect the stability of a trench or excavation. Soil Mechanics Cont.:  Soil Mechanics Cont. Following are some of the more frequently identified causes of trench failure. Tension Cracks: Usually form at a horizontal distance of .5 to .75 times the depth of the trench, measured from the top of the vertical face of the trench. Sliding or Sluffing: May occur as a result of tension cracks. Soil Mechanics Cont.:  Soil Mechanics Cont. Toppling: In addition to sliding, tension cracks can cause toppling. 1. Toppling occurs when the trench’s vertical face shears along the tension crack line and topples into the excavation. Soil Mechanics Cont.:  Soil Mechanics Cont. Subsidence and Bulging: 1. An unsupported excavation can create unbalanced stress in the soil, which in turn, causes subsidence at the surface and bulging of the vertical face of the trench. 2. If uncorrected, this condition can cause face failure and entrapment of workers in the trench. Soil Mechanics Cont.:  Soil Mechanics Cont. Heaving or Squeezing: Bottom heaving or squeezing is caused by the downward pressure created by the weight of adjoining soil. This pressure causes a bulge in the bottom of the cut. Heaving and squeezing can occur even when shoring or shielding has been properly installed. Soil Mechanics Cont.:  Soil Mechanics Cont. Boiling is evidenced by an upward water flow into the bottom of the cut. 1. A high water table is one cause of boiling. Boiling produces a “quick” condition in the bottom of the cut, and occur even when shoring or trench boxes are used. Soil - Composition:  Soil - Composition What is Soil ? Soils - Types:  Soils - Types Gravel larger than 2 millimeters Sand Smaller than 2 millimeters but larger than 0.075 millimeters Silt Smaller than 0.075 millimeters but larger than 0.002 millimeters Clay Smaller than 0.002 millimeters Determination of Soil Type:  Determination of Soil Type OSHA categorizes soil and rock deposits into four types. Each type is briefly described below. Stable rock is natural solid mineral matter that can be excavated with vertical sides and remain intact while exposed. Slide48:  ROCK! Slide49:  Black Pine Mine Slide - Idaho Determination of Soil Type:  Determination of Soil Type Type A soils are cohesive soils with an unconfined compressive strength of 1.5 tons per square foot or greater. Examples of type A soils are: clay, silty clay, sandy clay, clay loam, and in some cases silty clay loam and sandy clay loam. Determination of Soil Type:  Determination of Soil Type No soil is type A if it is fissured, is subject to vibration of any type, has previously been disturbed, is part of a sloped, layered system where the layers dip into the excavation on a slope of 4H to 1V or greater, or has seeping water. Determination of Soil Type:  Determination of Soil Type Type B soils are cohesive soils with an unconfined compressive strength greater than 0.5 tons per square foot, but less than 1.5 tons per square foot. Examples are: angular gravel, silt, silt loam, previously disturbed soils unless otherwise classified as type C soil. Determination of Soil Type:  Determination of Soil Type Soils that meet the unconfined compressive strength or cementation requirements of type A soils but are fissured or subject to vibration; dry unstable rock; layered systems sloping into the trench at a slope less than 4H to 1V ( only if the material would be classified as a type B soil). Determination of Soil Type:  Determination of Soil Type Type C soils are cohesive soils with an unconfined compressive strength of 0.5 tons per square foot or less and include granular soils such as gravel, sand and loamy sand, submerged soil, soil from which water is freely seeping, and submerged rock that is not stable. Determination of Soil Type:  Determination of Soil Type Type C soils also include in this classification material in a sloped, layered system where the layers dip into the excavation or have a slope of 4H to 1V or greater.
