This course goes beyond the basic awareness level of introductory courses and into the details necessary to create a safe environment for workers, as outlined in OSHA’s standard 29 CFR 1926.650. It helps a competent person answer important job site questions like: Are there adequate means of access and egress? Are adjacent structures stabilized? Does the procedure require benching or multiple benching? Shoring? Shielding? Are means of egress from the cut, cavity, or depression no more than 25 ft from the work?
