Together with OSHA Regent VI personnel we held our second Trench Training event September 16th, 2016, at Ritchie Bros. Auctioneer Fort Worth facility. With an intended cut-off of 3:00 and an unofficial headcount of 319, it was very well attended.  We thank all our sponsors and in-kind contributors: U.S. Shoring, National Trench Safety, United Rentals, North Texas Contracting, Team Safety, Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers, Buyers Barricades, MMG Building and Construction Services and Frost. Without the active participation of these member companies, such an event would be impossible. After a brief opening program featuring Texas 811, participants rotated through stations representing full scale ‘live’ scenarios. Survey results indicate this free to member training was very well received by our target audience of competent person and site leads.  It is this type of programming, facilitated, by our Alliance with OSHA, we hope to see replicated in other regions of the state as NUCA Texas membership grows.
