Construction work can expose employees to some pretty serious hazards. Compared to other areas on a construction site, working in an excavation more than doubles an employee's chances of being killed on the job. And some of the greatest excavation hazards can be encountered when they work in a trench. This training program provides employees with the information they need to work safely in and around a trench (OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1926).
