OSHA Trenching and Excavation Safety


Educational Resources

Updated guide available:

Trenching and Excavation Safety


An unprotected trench can be an early grave. Learn how to keep workers safe.

Trench and excavation work are among the most hazardous operations in construction. Because one cubic yard of soil can weigh as much as a car, an unprotected trench can be an early grave. OSHA's updated guide to Trenching and Excavation Safety* highlights key elements of the applicable workplace standards and describes safe practices that employers can follow to protect workers from cave-ins and other hazards. A new section in the updated guide addresses safety factors that an employer should consider when bidding on a job. Expanded sections describe maintaining materials and equipment used for worker protection systems as well as additional hazards associated with excavations.

OSHA Focuses on Women in Construction

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) have signed an alliance agreement with the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) focused on safety and health issues specific to females. The alliance will develop compliance assistance tools and resources on musculoskeletal hazards, sanitation, and personal protective equipment (PPE.) Follow this link to view the alliance web page,

Additionally, after receiving a recommendation from the Advisory Committee on Construction Safety and Health (ACCSH), OSHA started a Women in Construction web page. This website addresses safety and health hazards faced by females that create barriers to construction industry employment. OSHA's new Women in Construction website can be viewed at


The information in this publication is based on NIOSH supported research; Nail Gun Safety: A Guide for Construction Contractors (NIOSH Publication No. 2011–202/OSHA Publication No. 3459–8–11); and focus group discussions with residential building subcontractors, safety specialists and workers. New nail gun users must receive safety training, not just a copy of this publication. Safety training requirements are described in detail in Nail Gun Safety: A Guide for Construction Contractors and can be viewed and printed or downloaded from

Electrical Apprenticeship Classes and Journeyman Exam Prep

Sponsored by: AE Tech Electrical Training Center

AETech's Electrical Apprentice Program has been designed with You in mind!

AETech provides an alternative education for the beginning electrician. We understand that not every individual has a schedule or resources to attend a two year Technical School. So we designed a full-time day-time program that allows you to spend your entire day studying the topics that are of interest to you and will speed you toward your goal of employment in an interesting, great-paying career as an electrician. We spend the full day on the technical topics necessary to your success and do not require you to spend any time repeating General Education Classes similar to what you have probably taken in the past. Those same General Education Courses were an important part of your over-all learning experience in the past, but our program makes full use of your time to fill your days with the technical education you need to start your future NOW. This is why we are able to help you complete this training program in four months, NOT a matter of years.

 At AETech we believe that hands-on training is the key to success! 

We have Electrical training labs from:

• Electrical Theory
• Residential Wiring
• Commercial Wiring
• Conduit Bending
• Motor Control
• And much more!

At AETech, We understand that not every individual has a schedule or resources to attend

a 2 year Technical School with General Education Classes.

So we designed a full-time Apprentice Program with no General Education Classes

that an individual can complete in 4 months, NOT years.
