Trench Shoring University Review

”In the days after the course I had a number of employees contact me about the class. It sparked a lot of further discussion on the subject of trench and excavation safety. Our people were really thinking about what they had learned and were applying that information to their decision making process. As a Safety Director in the construction business, what more can you ask for? Awesome class.”
