Course Overview


This OSHA safety training course is for construction workers who work in and around excavation sites. Some of the hazards of working in excavations are cave-ins, toxic fumes, and fire. This course explains how protective systems such as supports, sloping and benching, and shields should be designed and used at excavation sites. OSHA requires a “competent person” to be at the excavation site. Viewers learn that a competent person is someone who can identify and eliminate hazards around the site, understands soils classifications, and knows about protective systems.
