Trenching & Excavation Classroom and Field





Excavation and trenching are extremely hazardous operations that expose workers to the possibility of serious injury or death. The greatest hazard associated with trenching is a cave-in of the surrounding soil when workers are in the trench, the result often being fatal.

This program instructs on trenching operations, including:

  • Soil Basics
  • Trench Protection (Sloping & Benching, Shoring & Shielding, Avoiding Hazards),
  • Recognizing the signs of trench danger and handling trench emergencies. 
Training will include a 2-hour hands-on field demonstration.

Presenter:  Mike Hayslip, Esq. PE, CSP.   Mike is a frequent and highly rated presenter for MTA/MVRMA in the areas of health and safety training.  He is president and owner of NESTI, a safety and health-training firm.  Mike is an attorney and a professional engineer with more than 15 years of hands-on safety experience.  Mike is a well-known public speaker and adjunct professor at the University of Cincinnati and Clark State University.
