Why Should You Take This TOSHA Excavation, Trenching, and Shoring - Competent Person course?

This OSHA Excavation, Trenching, and Shoring - Competent Person course is designed to give supervisors, inspectors, site managers, and workers the ability to identify existing and predictable hazards in the surroundings of an open trench. This course addresses the regulatory excavation standard through the eyes of the competent person.

"Competent person" means one who is capable of identifying existing and predictable hazards in the surroundings or working conditions which are unsanitary, hazardous or dangerous to employees, and who has authorization to take prompt corrective measures to eliminate them. In order to be a Competent Person for Trenching, Shoring, and Excavation, one must have had specific training in, and be knowledgeable about: soils analysis, the use of protective systems, and the requirements of state and federal standards. 

Participants will be instructed on field applications in order to help minimize the risks of employee injuries, accidents and equipment failures on the worksite. Hands-on training and field exercises may be used to demonstrate how to conduct a trench inspection, soil classification or installation and use of protective systems such as shields or shoring.


Topics To Be Covered Include:

  • Soil Classification (Participants are informed how to identify the three major soil types (A, B, & C) and the requirements for safe protective systems for excavating in each).
  • Site Safety Inspections (This portion of the course includes methods of conducting daily work site inspections of excavations, adjacent areas, and protective systems before beginning work and as needed throughout the shift).
  • Sloping and Benching
  • Timber Shoring for Trenches
  • Aluminum Hydraulic Shoring for Trenches
  • Confined Space Issues in Trenches
