Kentucky OSHA Trenching Classes
For excavation and plumbing contractors under 30 employees
March 16 & 17, 2010
Annually, dozens of workers are killed in trenching and excavation accidents and hundreds more are injured. Small businesses are especially vulnerable. With the right training, these deaths and injuries are preventable.
Join the experts at Bluegrass Community and Technical College in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky, for trenching classes designed to protect small excavation and plumbing contractors from trenching hazards. The event is sponsored by the NIOSH Small Business Cross-Sector Program and its partners, AGC of Kentucky and Kentucky OSHA.

In this class, you'll move from classroom presentations to an outdoor demonstration of trench safety techniques and equipment during one four-hour session. You'll see the latest trenching, shoring, and shielding procedures and equipment. Some of the products demonstrated are particularly good for smaller jobs where protective shoring or shielding is still needed.
Sign up for any of the four sessions offered on March 16 and 17, 2010. Each class features two hours of classroom instruction and two hours of live trenching demonstration. Sessions will be taught by three of the area's best industry professionals and safety experts: Al Heckmann of Heckmann Sales & Leasing, Steven Jones of Kentucky OSHA, and Ronnie Perkins of AGC of Kentucky. Training will be held on the campus of Bluegrass Community and Technical College in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. Special thanks to Bluegrass Community and Technical College and Heckmann Sales & Leasing for location and equipment assistance.
