OSHA Construction: Excavation Safety

Working at an excavation site can be extremely hazardous. This OSHA safety training course explains what those hazards are and how to reduce the risks of working in an excavation site.

This excavation safety training shows how injuries resulting from excavation hazards such as cave-ins, falls, and fires can be minimized through the use of protective systems and equipment like supports, shields, harnesses, and hard hats. Viewers learn excavation sites should be inspected daily by a competent person to ensure the site is safe for workers. Excavations of more than 4 feet should be tested for oxygen deficiency and high levels of hazardous substances. Under these adverse conditions ventilation and respiratory protection must be provided, and rescue equipment such as breathing apparatus, a safety harness and line, and basket stretcher must be available.

Take this online course to learn how to protect yourself and others in excavation sites.
