With an increase in trench collapse the past years in Ontario and the ever present opportunity for striking gas or water lines, flooding or being engulfed, we need to review the necessity in worker protection and what to consider before undertaking work in a trench.

Many employers are unaware that some trenches become confined spaces, and that extra information and training may be required to keep their workers safe. Is a rescue plan required? What do we need to know about Vac Trucks on site? Call us today and find out what you need to know to stay safer working in trenches!

Certification valid for three years from date of issue.
