The Value of Training and Certification


Ten COMANCO Employees Demonstrate the Value of Training and Certification with Online Trenching and Excavation Course

Learning new things in a classroom is often the best way to prepare for action, like a football team reviewing plays in the locker room before a game. Similarly, not all of the training at COMANCO is hands-on. This approach was recently demonstrated by ten employees who attended an online trenching and excavation course with J&W Associates. 

The class they completed is designed to equip employees with the knowledge and skills to work safely in trenching and excavation environments, reducing the risk of accidents and injuries in the field. They studied principles of proper trench design, including the angle of repose, sloping, benching, and trench boxes. The class also discussed identifying and understanding common hazards associated with trenching, such as cave-ins, falling objects, and hazardous atmospheres. Additionally, attendees learned how to evaluate and classify soil types to determine their stability and the appropriate protective measures needed for trenching in specific soil conditions.

Trainer Mike Steel provided tips and best practices for safe trenching operations, from planning and excavation to backfilling and site restoration. Afterward, our employees passed the final exam, evaluating their understanding of the material before receiving their excavation certification. We are proud to have such a knowledgeable team making on-site safety a reality. Congratulations! 


COMANCO is a leading environmental, commercial, and civil construction company specializing in constructing containment facilities.
