NAXSA-Approved Shoring Shield Tab Data Sheet (PDF)
Trench shields are manufactured by many different companies throughout the United States and Canada. As required by OSHA Subpart P each manufacturer issues tabulated data for their product. The amount of information, terminology, basis of the data, and notes given on those data sheets varies significantly. Establishing a standard shield data sheet that provides everyone using it with a clear understanding of the information necessary and how to apply it would provide a baseline for the competent person and the persons reviewing it for conformance to what is installed in the field. Developed by the NAXSA Engineering Committee, the NAXSA standard data sheet to be used as a minimum standard for teaching and interpretation.
The NAXSA Shoring Shield Tab Data sheet was approved in August 2018.
