Virtual Trenching and Excavation - June 7, 2022, from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00
Studies show that excavation work is one of the most hazardous types of work done in the construction industry. Injuries from excavation work tend to be of a very serious nature and often result in fatalities. The primary concern in excavation-related work
is a cave-in. Cave-ins are much more likely to be fatal to the employees involved than other construction-related accidents. This workshop will provide an overview of 29 CFR 1926.650 -652 Excavations, including the role of the competent person.

Pre-registration is required, using this address:
Virtual Powered Industrial Trucks - July 14, 2022, from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00
The OSHA 1910.178 Powered Industrial Truck Standard requires formal instruction, practical training, and evaluation of operator performance for both General Industry and Construction Industry material handling operations. Does your training program meet
the standards requirements? This one-hour virtual class will provide an overview of the standard and its requirements.

Pre-registration is required. The Zoom address will be posted 6 weeks before the event.
