Trenching & Shoring Safety in Construction Environments

Updated Sep 27, 2018

Course Description

MARCOM's interactive course on Trenching & Shoring Safety in Construction Environments helps facilities comply with OSHA's regulations and safe work practices that can prevent accidents from occurring.

Twenty percent of workplace fatalities in the U.S. involve construction workers, but their chances of getting killed on the job more than double when they're working in a trench. An average of two employees are killed every month when the trench they're working in collapses on them. Many of these deaths and thousands of injuries can be prevented when employees understand the hazards that can be encountered in trenching work.

Topics covered in this course include: the hazards of trenching; the competent person and worksite inspection; soil types and protective systems; ongoing inspection and testing; access, egress, setback and equipment, working defensively and more.

Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today. The course is divided into a number of logical sections so information is easily understood... and retained.
