Regardless of the depth, OSHA requires that all trenches be inspected by a designated competent person for possible collapse or other dangers that could be experienced by the workers. OSHA does not recognize experience alone as a qualifier for signing off as the “Competent Person” on the required paperwork / permits and mandates technical training for the person filling that position.

If you were one of the great professionals that “follow” our website and keep up with what we are doing, we want to “thank you”! We are offering a free course on “Developing Training Records”….. that won’t send you to jail. OSHA and many other agencies require training records that are accurate, timely, and reflect the current training of EVERY individual working for you. Many large “Bids” require access to company training records in order to place a bid on a contract and refuse companies that can not comply. This class will help you develop training records for your employees that are timely, accurate, and are defend-able. The on-line class will start 26 October and is 15 hours long.*** End time is when you finish the 15 hours, so you can take as long as you want to finish the class (this is a real class and you can get college credit if you are a ENMUR student). If you would like to take advantage of this free class please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you a short registration form so we know who is in the class and arrange for your certificate.

The safety people you meet in classes that you take can be a great source of knowledge now and in the future. By setting up your network of friends and colleagues now, you streamline the process of establishing a support base latter.
What good is a support base you may ask? A support with people who have a common core knowledge is essential in the Occupational Safety field. Many times, I will get a call from a former student asking a question concerning one regulation or another. I even get calls from government inspectors from time to time. What I am trying to say is that we all have questions sometimes and it is nice when you have a trusted cohort that you can call on.
Currently I am setting up the network for NCEHSE.com and I can tell you that it is a daunting task. If it were not for great sites like Linked In and others, it would take years of categorizing contacts into a usable list. You will hear old-timers say, “if I had known then, what I know now, I would have done things differently”. What I am telling you now is DON’T WAIT!
Start by writing down a list of knowledgeable people now that you can turn to if you have a question! First on your list should be any good instructors you may have come across in your training. Next, should be the obvious go-getters in the classes you took. Finally, people who you admire for their knowledge or decision making abilities and last but not least….. your friends. A little work now will save you a lot of legwork in the years to come.
