Safety Awareness: Excavations

35 Min
Closed Captioned

This CLS: Safety Awareness—Excavations course trains workers on how to use the OODA Loop to protect themselves and their coworkers against potential hazards when working in and around excavations on construction job sites. As they become more familiar with the four steps of the OODA Loop, workers will learn to Observe the work area for signs of hazards related to excavations, Orient to hazards and ask themselves how they can mitigate them, Decide on the safest course of action, and Act to eliminate any risk. Topics include soil inspections, protective systems, trench collapse risks, and other risks related to trenches.

At the end of the course, workers will put their learning to the test by entering our OODA Loop simulator, where they will go through each step of the OODA Loop to find and mitigate hazards in a 3D construction environment.
