Excavation & Trenching, Competent Person
May 7 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm$150 – $200
Why should you attend? If you are involved in or exposed to excavation activities you should attend this class.
Cal/OSHA regulations mandate that every professional excavation project have a trained “competent person” in direct control of the project. Research indicates that the fatality rate for excavation work is 112% higher than the rate for general construction. Past reports put the death rate from trench collapse at an average of 2 per week in the US alone.
Upon Completion of this training, participants will understand the duties and importance of a competent person as well as the knowledge, skills and documentation required of the competent person during excavation activities
