OSHA Competent Person Training – Trenching and Excavations

On Site Excavation Safety Training for the Competent Person

Have our professional OSHA-authorized Outreach trainer come to your site and conduct the Competent Person for Excavation Training course for your group. The class is based on the requirements of Subpart P of the Federal OSHA CFR 1926 construction standards for trenching and excavations. However, we also address nuances that may appear in state OSHA regulations regarding their excavation standards, where applicable.

Competent Person Training Class Overview

There are no prerequisites required to take the excavation competent person training course. The competent person for excavations training class takes approximately seven (7) hours to complete, and can be conducted for your group of eight or more students anywhere in the United States during the week or on the weekend.

This excavation competent person class consists of PowerPoint instruction, video, workshops and a test to keep the trainees engaged. Attendees will also receive a manual, note packet, and a personalized certificate of completion for successfully completing the excavation competent person training course. And all trenching and excavation competent person training is documented / certified per OSHA requirements.

You can also arrange to have an additional “hands-on” exercise covering the use of your excavation safety equipment at your site, upon request (extra charge). This additional training session will be facilitated by our trainer the day following the classroom training.
