Quick Overview

This online training course covers Cal/OSHA regulations for excavation site requirements, the hazards present at excavation sites, protective systems that can be implemented, and requirements for those systems. The excavation safety training also covers employer and employee responsibility for training and implementing necessary safety measures.

The risks of working in trenches and excavations include cave-ins, floods, and other emergencies that can cause entrapment and even death. If an employee understands the risks involved and how to properly guard against them, injuries and fatalities are far less likely to occur.
