NAHB Offers Trenching, Excavation Safety Resources

In an effort to increase job site safety and reduce the chance of job related accidents, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) has added two new products to its catalog of safety resources, the Trenching and Excavation Safety Video, English-Spanish and the NAHB-OSHA Trenching and Excavation Safety Handbook, English-Spanish.

The two products are now available through BuilderBooks, NAHB’s publishing arm.

“The trenching and excavation safety video and handbook provide our industry with critically important information for maintaining a safe work-site environment,” said NAHB Chairman of the Board Sandy J. Dunn, a second-generation home builder from Point Pleasant, W.Va. “The two products work together as easy-to-use resources for both English- and Spanish-speaking employees.”

The handbook explains in simple language how to comply with OSHA excavation standards on residential jobsites. Offered in a format that provides translation from English into Spanish, it provides guidelines for conducting safe trenching and excavation operations and identifies safe work practices that can prevent serious accidents and injuries. The 30-minute Trenching and Excavation Safety Video can be used by builders to train workers to reduce accidents and injuries related to these operations on homebuilding jobsites. This video shows how to safely perform the most common trenching and excavation operations in residential construction, highlighting general requirements for complying with OSHA’s Excavation Standard and identifying key prevention measures that address the most common hazards on the jobsite.

The Trenching and Excavation Safety Video and the NAHB-OSHA Trenching and Excavation Safety Handbook are available for purchase at www.BuilderBooks.com or by calling 800-223-2665.
