NUCA, U.S. Shoring host Live Trench Training
More than 350 contractors attended NUCA’s Live Trench Training in September in Southlake, Texas. U.S. Shoring & Equipment Co. demonstrated a live bore pit featuring Pacific Shoring trench boxes and a Barbco 30/250 bore machine. U.S. Shoring also provided instruction on trench box installation and best practices of how to work safely inside of a trench box. OSHA representatives were also in attendance to provide direction on proper safety practices as well. “This live training is a paramount opportunity within our industry because it brings together both contractors and OSHA officers in a controlled environment to both learn and ask questions of the OSHA representatives in a neutral and non-invasive environment,” said U.S. Shoring General Manager Slate Westbrook.
