8-Hour Excavation Competent Person

November 17, 2021
Location: Location: STEP Training Center | Time: 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. | Duration: 8 hours



The primary hazard of trenching and excavation is employee injury from collapse. Excavating is recognized as one of the most hazardous construction operations. OSHA recently revised Subpart P, Excavations, of 29 CFR 1926.650, .651, and .652 to make the standard easier to understand, permit the use of performance criteria where possible, and provide employers with options when classifying soil and selecting employee protection methods.


Special emphasis on case studies, real world situations and equipment that should be used is part of this seminar. 


A competent person must be designated to oversee excavation work and ensure that all excavations are in compliance with the relevant regulations.


This course is a competent person course. One tool in determining competency is to give a test at the end of the course. Class participants are required to achieve a score of at least 80% on that test to receive a competent person certificate/card. Employees scoring lower than 80% will not be issued a certificate/card.
