About the Course


Most workers don’t realize the force that will hit them when a cave in occurs. A person buried under only a few feet of soil can experience enough pressure in the chest area to prevent the lungs from expanding. Suffocation can take place in as little as three minutes. Heavier soils can crush and distort the body in a matter of seconds. It’s no wonder then that trench accidents cause so many deaths and permanent disabilities each year.

Excavation and trenching are among the most hazardous construction operations.  In this course we will look at safety measures that can be adopted  to prevent such accidents.
