Trenching and Excavation Competent Person Training

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, and supervisors working in or around trenches and other types of excavations. This 8-hour course instructs the student in the identification of hazards, soils and analysis, use of protective systems and regulatory requirements. This allows them to be designated by their employer as a “Competent Person.” Curriculum includes: pre-evacuation procedures, trenching and shoring methods, trench safety (weather, soil changes, vibration, spoil bank location, etc.), equipment ventilation, entry/exit procedure, monitoring and communications.

When:
February 27, 2009 - Raleigh

The second half of the class is an actual jobsite “mock OSHA” visit of one of your projects in which students will walk through the process as the instructor plays the part of the inspector looking for actual OSHA violations that you can correct immediately and conducting employee interviews.

This class will help you prevent costly mistakes caused by ill-informed employees who believe they are doing the best in the interest of your company during the inspection when in fact, they could be supplying more information to the inspector than is necessary.
