Only: $29.99/ person

Wallet ID included Mobile Device Ready

Our Competent Person For Excavation, Trenching And Shoring course is designed for individuals seeking certification for work in compliance with OSHA’s excavations regulations specified in 29 CFR 1926 Subpart P.

Working in and around excavations and trenches is inherently dangerous. Hazards include cave-ins, falling loads, electrocutions, explosions, falls, and hazardous atmospheres (among many others). As part of a safety and health program, OSHA requires employers to emphasize specific practices that will help reduce the risk of on-the-job injuries and illnesses at excavation sites.

If your job requires you to work in and around excavations and trenches as a part of your job duties, then it is important that you receive additional on-site training from your employer in addition to this online course.

  • OSHA defines an excavation as any man-made cut, cavity, trench, or depression in the Earth’s surface formed by earth removal. A trench is defined as a narrow excavation (in relation to its length) made below the surface of the ground. In general, the depth of a trench is greater than its width, but the width of a trench (measured at the bottom) is not greater than 15 feet (4.6 m).
