Trenching and Shoring Safety in Construction Environments
MARCOM's interactive course on Trenching and Shoring Safety in Construction Environments helps employees understand the hazards that can be encountered in trenching work as well as the OSHA regulations and safe work practices that can prevent accidents from occurring. Twenty percent of workplace fatalities in the U.S. involve construction workers, but their chances of getting killed on the job more than double when they're working in a trench. An average of two employees are killed every month when the trench they're working in collapses on them. But many of these deaths and thousands of injuries can be prevented. Areas covered in the course include the hazards of trenching, the competent person and the worksite inspection, soil types and protective systems, ongoing inspecting and testing, access, egress, setback and equipment, working defensively, and more. Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today. The course is divided into a number of logical sections so information is easily understood and retained. MARCOM's online courses come with a comprehensive and easy-to-use learning management system (LMS). With this system you can establish your own training environment by setting registration requirements and defining log-ins, create curricula for various positions and departments, set up tests and more. The system also tracks all employee activity and performance, including, which courses employees have taken, when the courses were taken, test scores, and other important data. This information can be accessed online as well as printed in hardcopy form.
