"Competent Person" Training
OSHA requires that a "Competent Person" be on your construction or
maintenance site whenever workers are exposed in an excavation.
Course Preview is Available
Applied to trenching or excavation operations, the Competent Person (CP)
must have specific training and be knowledgeable of the requirements of the
standard, soils analysis, and use of protective systems. In addition, the CP
must have authority to take immediate corrective measures to eliminate
unsafe conditions. TrenchSafety's Competent Person Training Program is
designed to help you meet OSHA's training requirements.
