"These photos were taken at a jobsite in USA. The work is
being done in a basement of an existing building. The Contractor
had to excavate 8’ down to thicken the footing. The first two
photos, show the mini excavator working on a slope with a guy
right in front of him, in the ditch. The labourer is not wearing
a safety vest working right next to a vertical slope, with the
mini right above him. There is also not any type of barricade or
warning tape to keep people from the open trench"
"The same trench after it was completely dug out. There is
improper use of the step ladder, there are not any safety caps on
any of the rebar. There is 120/240 volt unprotected temporary power
cords going through the door, that feed the rest of the project"
