Trenching & Excavation Safety Training

Two workers are killed each month in trench collapses. Cave-ins pose the greatest risk and are much more likely to result in worker fatalities, but other potential hazards include falls, falling loads, hazardous atmospheres, and incidents involving mobile equipment.

Paragon Safety Group offers a Trenching and Excavation Safety course that trains workers in the use of protective gear and equipment, safe work practices, accident reporting, and the procedures required for your company to be OSHA compliant. This course is available in both English and Spanish.
