Trenching and Excavation


Welcome to Trenching and Excavation

Dig it, man; this is groovy! No this course won't smooth your disco steps, but it might cause you to watch your step when working around excavations and heavy equipment. You may not be hip, stylin a new hard hat, but you will learn what it means and the basics of how to be safe while working in a trench or excavation.

In this safety-training program, you will learn how OSHA Excavation and Trenching Standards help prevent cave-ins, falls, falling loads, and hazards from mobile equipment, water accumulation, poisonous gases, or access and egress obstructions. You'll dig into what it means to be a competent person, soil classifications and types, and how to determine which is which. You'll boogey to a new groove when you learn about protective systems, hazards posed by poisonous gases, and training requirements.
