English term or phrase: ground disturbance
The dimensions of the pit will be determined by the volumes of waste generated during the spill response. To reduce the risk associated with ground disturbance (collapsing sides, trips, slips and falls) the maximum depth of the pit shall be no more than 1.5m. The side walls of the pit shall be tapered away from the centre of the pit to reduce the potential of them collapsing.
