Why train your employees in trench shoring, and excavations?
There are few tasks as dangerous as trenching and excavation. In addition to OSHA’s language making training your employees in the recognition and avoidance of unsafe conditions mandatory [CFR 1926.21(b)(2)}, your employees may be exposed to all four of the focus four categories: struck by, caught between, falls, and electrocution.
A competent person is a person who is capable of identifying existing and predictable hazards in the surroundings or working conditions that are unsanitary, hazardous, or dangerous to employees. The competent person has the authority to impose prompt corrective measures to eliminate these hazards.

Once competent person training has been completed it will be up to each employer determined the competent person designation at each of their job-sites. Although, an individual has completed the training, further demonstration to the employer may be needed in order to show they are capable of identifying existing and predictable hazards.
