On August 19 and 20, 2021, GBCA held two 1-day trainings on trench and excavation safety hazards in construction at Med-Tex Services in Philadelphia. The trainings were organized by AGC of America and funded by a Susan Harwood Training Grant from OSHA. The trainings were taught by Bob Emmerich of Safe-Con and Jim Goss of HCSS.
On August 19, the weather was clear enough for some time outdoors. John Hucke of United Rentals spoke with the class about trench safety product manufacturers’ information and how to apply it in the field.
GBCA is dedicated to providing resources to the Philadelphia region’s construction community, and we look forward to holding more trainings for our members and workforce in the future!
