LATEST NEWS



Trenching Safety

OSHA has updated the National Emphasis Program (NEP) on preventing trenching and excavation collapses in response to a recent spike in trenching fatalities. OSHA's NEP will increase education and enforcement efforts while its inspectors will record trenching and excavation inspections in a national reporting system, and each area OSHA office will develop outreach programs.

OSHA also announced the development of a series of compliance assistance resources to help keep workers safe from trenching and excavation hazards.

Reminder - 90-day Grace Period Eliminated!

Effective January 1, 2019, the 90-day grace period for renewing your OSHA Outreach Trainer Cards will be eliminated.

The requisite update course must be completed BEFORE the expiration date indicated on your trainer card. If your authorization lapses, not only must you retake the Trainer Course in order to once again be authorized to conduct the 10- and 30-hour outreach classes, but you will be subject to meeting all the new prerequisites for becoming a trainer, up to and including successfully having completed the applicable Standards course within the past 7 years. If you have any questions or need help registering for a class please call 866-906-9190.
