Greenwich, Conn.-based United Rentals last week released the second in a series of white papers on issues of importance to the construction and rental industries and their customers.
"Optimal Trench Protection: Key to Safety and Cost-Effectiveness" explains why it is important for contractors to understand the full range of trench protective systems available for underground construction projects. In addition, the white paper is part of a broader, ongoing United Rentals initiative to provide the most cost-effective trench protective solutions, encompassing equipment, information, training, technical support and industry innovation.
"As the largest equipment rental company in the world, United Rentals has a responsibility to help drive improvements in the safety and productivity of construction methods above and below ground,” said Paul McDonnell, vice president, Trench Safety, Pump & Power for United Rentals. “United Rentals is collaborating with the private and public sectors to generate awareness, foster emerging technologies, and develop and promote best practices regarding trench safety."
The United Rentals white paper series is available at no charge to the general public, and is offered in English and Spanish. "Optimal Trench Protection: Key to Safety and Cost-Effectiveness" can be downloaded or printed from the company's website at unitedrentals.com.
