Trench Shield Tabulated Data Commentary (PDF) - Released August 2020
After formation, one of the first projects the NAXSA Engineering committee took on was to develop a standardized tabulated data sheet for trench shields. Trench shields are manufactured by many different companies throughout the United States and Canada, and as required by OSHA Subpart P, each manufacturer shall issue tabulated data for their product. Unfortunately, the amount of information, terminology and notes given on those data sheets varies significantly and can be confusing and overwhelming for the end user. Therefore, establishing a standard shield data sheet that presents the information in an organized manner while using consistent language would allow for competent person and persons reviewing these documents to be sure they are being used in compliance with the notes and limitations.
