These 2-day classes will be offered in three convenient California locations in 2019.  Excavation and trenching hazards are a leading cause of construction worker fatalities, and are one of OSHA’s “Focus Four” top priorities. Due to a recent uptick in trenching fatalities, OSHA has revived their national emphasis program.


This course prepares trainers to teach basic hazard awareness information to construction workers from all crafts.  Participants receive a complete ready-to-teach curriculum, links to resources,  and teaching tips.  This year’s classes will include three guest presenters, a Senior Safety Engineer from Cal/OSHA and two trench collapse survivors who will share stories of their life-changing experiences. Trainers will have the opportunity to exchange ideas and teaching techniques with their peers.


This course is for construction professionals with the capacity to train front-line workers. Participants will be required to teach our curriculum to a minimum of 20 workers before the end of September 2019.


Note: Materials provided through this training may be used for non-commercial, instructional, educational purposes only; trainers may not charge fees for this material. The goal of our program is to share this safety information with as many workers as possible through a network of union, apprenticeship and employer/contractor trainers.
