Be Sure to Register for the Trenching and Shoring Competent Person Workshops

Posted By IAMU, Tuesday, March 12, 2019

IAMU will hold a Trenching and Shoring Competent Person Workshop from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on March 21 at the IAMU Training and Office Complex and another one on April 11.

OSHA requires a competent person be onsite at every excavation. The competent person is required to evaluate site safety and resolve existing and potential hazards. 

This workshop is designed for city and utility employees and outside contractors employed by a city, or anyone working in a trenching and shoring situation.  It is an excellent opportunity to become qualified as a competent person (or stay current with the responsibilities).

The DNR has approved 0.6 CEUs for WD and WW only.

The training received will cover the overall requirements of the law, including:

  • Employee Safety
  • Dealing with traffic
  • Soil identification
  • Emergency equipment
  • Determining if shoring is needed
  • Proper methods of trenching and shoring

Contact the contractors that work for your city/utility and encourage them to register and attend.
