Excavation and trenching work has a fatality rate that is 112% that of general construction. In this Excavation and Trenching Safety course, we go in depth on what employees need to know from the differences between excavations and trenches, the competent and qualified person onsite, soil types, hazard assessments, reducing risk, and an animation on the warning signs of trench collapse. The video training finishes with a basic course on what to do if a trench collapse occurs and how to get help quickly without endangering yourself or others. The training is broken up into 8, short video segments. Each segment is followed by several key learning objective quiz questions. This helps to increase learner retention of the course material. This course was designed to align with OSHA 1926.651 for construction.
