OSHA Alliance Program Offers Online Presentation on Trenching Safety

July 2, 2021
The WMOSHA is offering a free educational program on July 23 to raise awareness about trenching and evacuation hazards.

The Occupational Safety Health Administration (OSHA) is focusing on trench and evacuation safety. To prevent cave-ins, workers should slope or bench trench walls, shore trench walls with supports or shield trench walls with trench boxes, according to OSHA. 

To learn more about how to stay safe, linemen can sign up to attend a free online class from 10 to 11:15 a.m. on July 23. The featured speaker is Bill Fortin, a compliance assistance specialist. Register by clicking here

OSHA also created a Resource page and the "5 Things You Should Know to Stay Safe" video, which is included below.
