"Trenching and Shoring"
Trenching is considered a caught-in/between event and is one of OSHA’s Fatal Four in construction.  In our area there have been two fatalities in the last couple of months.  One in Bellbrook and another in Marysville.  Both were preventable as are nearly all trench related incidents.  During this session we will review OSHA’s trenching and excavating standard and discuss how it applies to work that we or contractors on our site may do.  Questions are encouraged throughout the presentation.

Our Presenter: Scott McCormick
Scott is the Safety Director for Danis Construction, a commercial contractor with five offices located in three states.  Prior to that he was a Construction Safety Consultant for the Division of Safety and Hygiene, a consultative branch of the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation, for twenty years.  He has a BS in Occupational Safety and Health from Murray State University and a MS in Safety Management from Eastern Kentucky University.
