Excavation Safety: Avoid Becoming An OSHA Target; Know The Risks And Protect Your Workers
|Date / Time:
Excavations are a high-risk area in the construction industry, particularly in smaller projects: Up to 80 Americans will likely die this year in earth failures, typically in excavations between 5 and 14 feet, in collapses that develop extremely fast.
It can be easy to forget that once an excavation of any depth is started and the ground is destabilized, nature will attempt to stabilize the conditions - mainly through filling up the excavation and creating a high risk of suffocation.
OSHA is now targeting excavation activity as part of its National Emphasis Program. Are you on top of your legal responsibilities in this area? Although every excavation project is unique, a comprehensive excavation safety program will effectively address any given job.
Join us for an in-depth webinar on October 10, when you'll learn:
- The key OSHA regulations that are applicable to excavation activities, including the OSHA soil classification system
- Textbook hazards and risks associated with excavations
- How to factor in soil type (rock, gravel, silt, sand, clay, fill-in) and properties when developing a safe excavation plan
- Tips for addressing different strata and site-specific conditions, such as poor drainage, water seepage, vibrations from traffic, and more
- The different types of excavation protective systems - including sloping, benching, shoring, bracing, and engineered systems for deeper digs - and how to determine which one is best for a given job
- The dos and don'ts of working in standing water
- PPE you should consider for your workers involved in excavations
- Excavation program best practices to keep in mind
- The basic rules of excavation rescue, and how to customize them for each particular site
- Key components of a comprehensive excavation safety training program

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.

presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
