We scheduled OSHA competent person training in Illinois for a large group of contractors and also that same week, training for Illinois American Water. Unfortunately, during that week two workers were killed in trench accidents. One died in a trench cave-in and the other was struck in the head with an excavator bucket and was killed instantly.
As we all know contractors now each other very well and everyone was aware of what had happened. Needless to say we had their attention and it was a very somber but attentive group for training that week.
