OSHA has made reducing trenching and excavation hazards the Agency's Priority Goal. Trench collapses, or cave-ins, pose the greatest risk to workers' lives. CSUDH OSHA Education Center's next Quarterly Update event is in support of the 2019 Trench Safety Stand Down to raise awareness on cave-ins prevention. Get valuable information about current excavation requirements and safety procedures for working in trenches. By reaching as many workers as possible we can reduce the number of fatalities and serious injuries that occur each year in our industry, and make others, such as municipal and industry workers who are also exposed, aware of these serious hazards.

Honolulu, HI — The CSUDH OSHA Training Institute Education Center is now offereing classes in Honolulu. The 2019 classes will fulfill the requirements for the Public Sector Safety & Health Fundamentals certificate. Courses will be offered at the Airgas offices at 2305 Kamehameha Hwy Honolulu.
The CSUDH OSHA center is just one of 26 nationwide, and the only such center based in the Los Angeles area. “Our OSHA Training Institute has become the hub of safety training in the Los Angeles area,” said CSUDH OTIEC Director Raul Guzman. “Our 10 years in operation and re-certification by OSHA is an acknowledgment of the quality occupational safety and health training we have been offering for a decade as an OSHA Training Institute, and the decades more we have been offering safety training.”
CSUDH OSHA is hosting a stand-down to support this campaign and raise awareness on fall prevention. During the event we will share ideas and materials that can used by employers and co-workers to raise awareness at construction sites or any workplace setting.
Fatalities caused by falls from elevation continue to be a leading cause of death for construction employees, accounting for 370 of the 991 construction fatalities recorded in 2016 (BLS data). Those deaths were preventable. The National Fall Prevention Stand-Down raises fall hazard awareness across the country in an effort to stop fall fatalities and injuries.
