Trenches can be a danger to all involved, because of the risk of the trench collapsing and trapping workers and equipment. Even a non-serious collapse can hinder the job progress and use many man-hours to re-dig. Trench shoring uses different methods to hold up the walls of the trench in order to prevent such collapse.

There are a few methods of trench shoring to choose from, including hydraulic cylinder shoring, and steel trench boxes and shields. Hydraulics are usually the faster and easier to use, while the other options are more used for long-term applications or very large excavations.
