Training of employees is a critical component to any safe work environment. Since 1979 Trench Plate® Rental Co has provided Competent Person Training programs and over the years has trained thousands of students. We cover everything your crew needs to know to create a safe environment for your employees.
A competent person is one who is capable of identifying existing and predictable hazards in the surroundings or working conditions which are unsanitary, hazardous, and/or dangerous to employees, and has the authority to take prompt corrective measures to eliminate them.
Only a licensed contractor can measure the knowledge or ability of an employee and designate them as a competent person. This course provides understandings of the excavation standard and protective systems. This program has been designed to provide your labor force with the classroom training which along with their field experience may enable them to become a “Competent Person” as defined by OSHA. Call you Shoring Consultant and they can assist you with setting up the classes you and you employees need.
