As harmless as it looks, dirt can be one of the biggest hazards on any construction site.  It’s heavy and is bound to collapse without warning unless proper safety measures are taken into account.  Landslides are essentially no different than trench collapses, without proper shoring or sloping, you could be putting worker’s lives in danger.

Dramatic footage of a landslide that hit a construction site in Himachal Pradesh, India was caught on video and recently shared on Youtube.  In it, you can see small chucks of earth start to fall off the adjacent cliff, which very quickly increase in size, causing panic in the workers. It’s unclear if anyone was injured in the incident, but we certainly hope everyone was able to escape.
