2013-09-12  OSHA requires type C soil to be sloped at 1½H:1V and it cannot be benched. This means that the slope must be cut back 1½ ft horizontally for every 1 ft of depth. The 1½:1 is equal to an angle of 34 degrees from the horizontal. As for type A soil, the slope must be ¾H:1V, or 53 degrees, and type B soil, which is the easiest one to understand, is 1H:1V or 45 degrees from horizontal.
