Excavation is the one of the most dangerous of all construction operations and that's why the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires a competent person to oversee all excavation and trenching jobsites. The competent person must have specific training in, and be knowledgeable about, soil analysis, the use of protective systems, and the requirements of OSHA Subpart P.
The OSHA University Safety Competent Person Training program helps contractors train the competent person and workers. Although the responsibility for designating a competent person is the sole responsibility of the contractor, this program is designed to simplify the task by providing participants with the information and training needed to become a competent person.
Courses are available at 5 different locations: Morrisville, PA, Beltsville, MD and Hackensack, NJ. Courses can also be offered at your location; our mobile shoring demo truck will bring the hands-on training to you. Contact us for on-site training.
