Excavation & Trenching - If you are replacing a culvert under the roadway or installing sewer lines below the elevation of the basement of homes in the area, the standards found in the OSHA excavation and trenching program provide a safe working environment. In this course the student will: Identify basic hazards associated with excavations and treanching, Recognize the need for strick adherence to benching and shoring requirements, Recognize required responsibilities of the competeent person, Recognize the elements of soil stability and basic classifications, Recognize types of systems used to protect workers, Determine basic emergency response procedures. Intended audience for this course are the manager and staff that work in or around trenches or excations. Four hour course.

Roadway Safety Plus - This 2 hour course can be tailored according to the need of the students.  For workers, we can combine any of the 33 different safety modules in the RS+ program according to your preference to provide training in any aspect of the roadway construction safety. But for managers, foreman, supervisors and personnel in charge of the workers' safety, the course, manual and software can be provided to enable participants to use the RS+ Saftware as a tool to teach workers.  The RS+ is possibly the most advanced interactive software for roadway construction safety. Preventing Runovers and Backovers - This 4 hour course is sponsored by OSHA, and helps to reduce fatalities and accidents in the roadway construction industry by separating trucks and heavy machines from workers on foot in the work zone and creting an internal traffic control plan: our surveys show that this course substantially improves organization and safety behavior in the work zone. By the end of this course the student will be able to: Identify the difference between Temporary Traffic Control and Internal Traffic Control Identify the cause of most injuries and fatalities on maintenance and construction projects Identfy how to prevent those injuries and fatalities Describe what items need to be reviewed before working in the "Activity Area" Intended audience is the managers, supervisors, and staff who work in Traffic Control Zones.
