Twenty percent of workplace fatalities involve construction workers, with chances of getting killed doubling in a trench. Use this course to help trenching workers understand regulations needed to stop hazards that are encountered. An average of two employees are killed every month when the trench they’re working in collapses on them. But many of these deaths and thousands of injuries can be prevented. Microlearning topics covered: hazards of trenching, the competent person and the worksite inspection, soil types and protective systems, ongoing inspecting and testing, access, egress, setback and equipment, working defensively, and more.
