455th AEW Photos

CE in the trenches

Airmen from the 455th Expeditionary Civil Engineer Squadron examine a trench at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan. The trench, dug by contractors, will eventually contain a new water line. ECES Airmen toured the worksite to learn about the safety practices that such work requires. The visit coincided with the U.S Department of Labor's Trench Safety stand-down week. The fatality rate for excavation work is 112% higher than normal construction work, so safety is vital. (U.S. Air Force photo by Capt. Keenan Kunst)
