More Than 47,000 Workers Took Part in the 2019 Trench Safety Stand Down

The results of the 2019 TSSD Week, sponsored by NUCA and the Safety Ambassadors Club, the North American Shoring and Excavation Association (NAXSA), the Trench Shoring and Shielding Association (TSSA), and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), were astounding. More than 47,000 workers on more than 4,500 jobsites from 324 organizations participated this year. We more than doubled 2018’s results! Additionally, NUCA received two Governor’s Proclamations from the great states of Tennessee and Nebraska recognizing the week of July 17-21, 2019 as Trench Safety Stand Down Week.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to conduct stand downs during the busy construction season by holding pro-bono training across the country, including classroom instruction, onsite Toolbox Talks, and even mock rescues with local emergency response teams. Your participation speaks volumes about your commitment to employee safety. And, most importantly, together you have undoubtedly saved lives!
