Shoring box safety

Innovative solutions should always be encouraged if it means improving site safety.

Safety can always be improved but sometimes it takes a more creative and ‘outside the box’ approach. Such an idea can be the difference in preventing the day to day risk of a particular task or even the attitude of an entire workforce.

The example below shows how one site achieved this:

  • The contractor challenged and assisted suppliers of excavation shoring equipment over a safety problem encountered by site operatives – the risk of falling from height during the installation and extraction of shoring equipment;
  • One has responded and provided a system where connection and disconnection of edge protection to the shoring can be more quickly and safely undertaken;
  • It also allows the lifting chains to be fitted and removed with edge protection in place.
