This session will provide helpful information on understanding the hazards associated with excavation for remediation in addition to safety considerations to be considered for protection of workers, structures, and the community. While this session will touch on concepts covered in the OSHA Competent Person for Excavation, Trenching, and Shoring training per 29 CFR 1926 Subpart P, it is not intended to replace that required training and certification.
