  2. Equipment Injury.  Digging post holes involves using high speed, high powered augers that are driven by powerful motors and hydraulics.  You must stay clear of the moving parts or these augers can get twisted-up around clothing and limbs, causing serious injury.
  3. Open post holes.  These create a fall hazard for you and others.  Never leave holes open overnight.
