Competent Person – Trenching & Shoring
Based on the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), an average of 60 workers die in cave-ins annually. According to NIOSH, these events are not accidents; cave-ins are predictable and preventable. Fatalities are caused by an absence of trench protection, lack of knowledge and poor judgment. When working in trenches and excavation, there is no room for risk-taking. The lives of co-workers depend on the skill and knowledge of the competent person. This program focuses on the safety training of the competent person.
