What are Excavation Safety Checklists?

Excavation checklists are used to perform safety inspections and risk assessments for excavation and trenching projects. Excavation checklists are an essential tool used during pre-operations to evaluate the jobsite, utilities and equipment, access means, area atmosphere and support systems to identify problems before they occur.

This page highlights a collection of regulatory and best practice excavation checklists you can download for free. Use iAuditor to customize your own excavation safety checklist and perform mobile inspections on-site, and generate reports on the spot.
