Course Description

This one-day course is designed as a training program to inform employers and employees of the best practices in trenching and excavation safety. The participant will learn about the role and responsibility of the employer to assign a “competent person” to the excavation site and provide that person with the knowledge of key excavation hazards. Topics include: understanding and application of definitions related to OSHA’s excavation standard; excavation hazards and control measures; soil analysis techniques; protection system requirements, and emergency response. The program is a facilitated interactive session.

Who should attend? Construction employer, manager, employee, or employee representative who, as part of a safety and health program, needs to understand the requirements of a “competent person” for excavation work as described in the OSHA construction safety standards for excavations (29 CFR 1926, Subpart P). Advanced training beyond the scope of OSHA Course 7410 is available by attending the 3.0 day OSHA 3015 Course: Excavation, Trenching and Soil Mechanics.
