Trenching and Shoring Safety in Construction Environments

MARCOM's video on demand (VOD) program on "Trenching and 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. This VOD program is one of the most effective and efficient ways to get employees the training that they need, in a classroom or individually through their desktop or tablet computer.
