COMPETENT PERSON TRAINING-TRENCHING & EXCAVATING

Friday, November 03, 2017 7:30 AM – 2:00 PM CST
AGC of Wisconsin Inc.
4814 E. Broadway
Madison, WI 53716

Excavation is the most dangerous of all construction operations. More workers are killed or seriously injured in and around excavations than in other phases of construction work, 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 and the use of protective systems.

For many years, the construction industry had little guidance in how it should deal with confined spaces.

Participants will learn the following from this workshop:

· Types of confined spaces in construction
· Procedures that must be followed
· Requirements for a written confined space entry program
