What are Safe Excavations?
Excavation on any site is no mean feat, and so there are rules and regulations that operators and contractors must follow to prevent serious incidents and harm. From inception to completion, stringent checks, safety measures, practical and theoretical knowledge, and skills will keep workers and the general public safe.
Excavation is present on small residential sites to massive quarry areas and beyond. Relevant training on the equipment to dig out the areas is necessary to carry out the works, but Safe Excavations goes further. Looking at how to prevent collapse, support the excavation throughout the project, stop people and materials from falling in, safe digging practices and record keeping, to name just a few. Confined spaces and risk classifications will also form part of Safe Excavations, equipping operators and supervisors with everything they need to operate correctly on excavation sites.
Which course should I take?
We have an extensive range of courses to choose from that train novice to expert, ranging from pure theory, appreciating why excavations need support, to complete practical courses covering all the different support systems.
All our training is EUSR accredited, and the course delegates take will depend on the level of skill they hold and the materials they will use in their excavations. Our EUSR courses are very flexible, so we can tailor your course to include the modules you require if you have the need.
We provide courses for the following EUSR categories:
Appreciation of Excavation Safety
Category 1 - Locate Utility Services
Category 2 - Implement Safe (Digging) Practices
Category 3 - Install, Inspect & Remove Timber Support Systems
Category 4 - Install, Inspect & Remove Steel Support Systems
Category 5 - Install, Inspect & Remove Proprietary Support Systems
