Trenching and Shoring General Awareness
Studies show that excavation work is one of the most hazardous types of work done in the construction industry. Injuries from excavation work tend to be of a very serious nature and often result in fatalities. The greatest risk comes from an unexpected cave-in, but other hazards include falls, falling objects, lack of oxygen in a close space, etc. This course will review legislation, soil types, inspections, weather, allowable slopes, shoring and benching, pre-fabricated/trench boxes, and safe access and egress.
