This workshop will not only teach the participants to recognize danger, but will equip them with the tools to prevent dangerous accidents.
You may also recall that this abbreviated class:
- Reviews the competent person information to refresh their memory about requirements of the standard,
- Shows the attendees other new approaches to comply with the standard not covered in the first, comprehensive course, and
- Discusses the other items that NC OSHA compliance officers have indicated that most trained competent people tend to forget.
So, this course is designed to be both an ADVANCED COURSE – presenting new shoring alternatives for those already having completed the full-day comprehensive course AND ALSO serve as a REFRESHER COURSE – hitting the high spots on many of the most important aspects from the full-day class.
Just to be crystal clear about the title and scope of the course, because this is an abbreviated course, stressing some of the most important aspects of the OSHA Trenching Standard and NOT a comprehensive course involving hands-on soil classification along with many of the other nitty-gritty details of the standard, each of the wallet cards are appropriately titled “Excavation Safety Awareness” rather than “Competent Person.”
