About this event:
Take the same course that has been used to train NC OSHA compliance
officers for the last 20 years! This course focuses on OSHA standards
and on the safety aspects of excavation and trenching. 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.
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 identification of hazards, soils and analysis, use of
protective systems and regulatory requirements.
Gain the knowledge required to be designated by your employer as a “Competent Person.” during trench and excavation operations.
Topics will include:
- OSHA subpart P
- Pre-evacuation procedures
- trenching and shoring methods
- soil classification
