CPWR Webinar on Trench Safety
Thursday, May 28th, 2020 at 2:00pm EDT: Increasing Awareness of Factors that Influence Trench Safety
Presenters: Joe Wise, Regional Customer Training Manager at United Rentals Trench Safety, and Eileen Betit, CPWR’s Research to Practice (r2p) Director.
Trench incidents and fatalities have increased over the past several years – so much so that OSHA, intent on reversing this trend, updated its National Emphasis Program on Trenching and Excavation in October 2018. Learn about a collaborative effort to increase awareness and knowledge of the factors that may contribute to trenching incidents and fatalities and ways to mitigate the risks.
