OSHA 3015 - Excavation, Trenching and Soil Mechanics

OSHA Numbered Courses

This course covers the OSHA Excavation Standard and safety and health aspects of excavation and trenching.  Course topics include practical soil mechanics and its relationship to the stability of shored and unshored slopes and walls of excavations, introduction of various types of shoring (wood timbers and hydraulic), soil classification, and use of protective systems.  Testing methods are demonstrated and students participate in workshops in the use of instruments such as penetrometers, torvane shears, and engineering rods.  Upon course completion students will have the ability to assess their employer’s compliance with the OSHA Excavation Standard, utilize soil testing methods to classify soil types, determine protective systems for excavation operations, and training requirements.

This Class can be taught at your facility.  We suggest a minimum of 12 students to make it cost effective for you, however we are happy to provide you a bid for fewer than 12. Click Here to request a quote
