Competent Person and Soil Classification
Cave-ins are predictable and preventable according to OSHA. Working around trenches can be dangerous. A cubic yard of soil can weigh 2700 pounds – that’s as much as a small truck. A person buried under a couple feet of soil can experience pressure to the chest causing suffocation. There is no room for risk-taking when working in trenches and excavations. A competent person is defined by OSHA standards relating to trenching and excavation activities. This program focuses on competent person and soil testing.
