TrenchTech, Inc. is proud to announce the formation, kick-off, "grand opening" of our full service construction safety institute. The concentration is on trench safety, fall protection, air quality as well as other areas of focus regarding worker safety. Classes will address awareness of OSHA standards that pertain to excavation safety, confined space (air quality), fall protection in 10 and 30 hour courses. In addition to classroom training, we will be providing hands-on demonstration of equipment in the yard; the proper procedures for installing and removing shoring of all kinds, confined space entry and options for fall protection and air monitoring. All classes will be conducted in compliance with OSHA standards and will result in attendees being issued completion certificates.
