Take the same course that has been used to train OSHA compliance officers for the past 25 years! This course focuses on OSHA standards and on the safety aspects of excavation and trenching. Did you know? The fatality rate for excavation work is 112% higher than the rate for general construction which means more workers are killed or seriously injured in excavations than any other phase of construction work.
Intended for construction, utility workers, supervisors, or anyone working in or around trenches and other types of excavations that may be designated as a "Competent Person". This 8-hour course instructs the student in the identifi cation of hazards, soils and analysis, use of protective systems and regulatory requirements.
About this event:
Students are introduced to practical soil mechanics and its relationship to the stability of shored and un-shored slopes and walls of excavations. Excavation is the most dangerous of all construction operations. More workers are killed or seriously injured in and around excavations than in other phases of construction work, and that's why the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires a competent person to oversee all excavation and trenching jobsites. The competent person must have specific training in, and be knowledgeable about, soil analysis, the use of protective systems, and the requirements of OSHA Subpart P.
Gain the knowledge required to be designated by you employer as a "Competent Person." during trench and excavation operations.
