There are still openings remaining at this time.
This course covers the OSHA Excavation Standards and safety and
health aspects of excavation and trenching. Course topics include
practical soil mechanics and its relationship to the stability of shored
and unshored slopes and walls of excavations, introduction of various
types of shoring (wood timbers and hydraulic), soil classification, and
use of protective systems. Testing methods are demonstrated and
students participate in workshops in the use of instruments such as
penetrometers, torvane shears and engineering rods.
