Excavation Systems Planning, Design, and Safety

Excavation Systems Planning, Design, and Safety 

Joe Turner

Preference :

The excavation safety and shoring and industry have been promoted, innovated, and influenced by many talented individuals; a few of these people I have had the privilege to know. Through my conversations with them, I have gained much of the knowledge put forth in this book. Naming some of these giants of the industry whom I have known would surely leave out others of equal importance whom I have not met but who have equally influenced me. I would like to gratefully acknowledge their effort and selfless contribution to the excavation safety industry.
