Prevent Trenching Injuries and Deaths – Trenching Trainer Course for Instructors


Tuesday, March 23, 2021

  • This event has passed.

Every year, trenches claim the lives of dozens of employees. Many times, these fatalities are due to a lack of understanding the hazards and inadequate training.

VRSA members are involved in trenching in their day-to-day responsibilities. Although virtual, this course will be hands-on and interactive with group activities along with instruction from VRSA Safety Consultants, designed to give our member’s instructors tools to provide effective trenching training to their employees.   At the conclusion of this course, all attendees will receive:

– A sample trenching program;
– A trenching PowerPoint presentation; and
– A trenching inspection checklist.

We invite you to join us in discussing ways to make training more effective for your employees.
