OSHA Competent Person Training

Prospan, in conjunction with the START Group of Bloomingdale, Illinois, provides on-site, hands-on training using the OSHA standard governing excavations.

Taught by highly qualified and experienced personnel, our training classes have been provided to over 200 municipalities, water authorities and utility companies as well as the insurance companies that insure them.

We bring the training to you!  This spares you the expense of overtime and associated costs for attending training at an off-site location. It also enables personnel to leave quickly should an emergency arise.

  • Training packages available
  • Regulatory classroom presentation
  • Evaluation of current level of compliance
  • Hands-on protective systems
  • On-site at your location

"Couldn't be happier. We've used the Prospan system for several years now and it continues to prove its worth. It's simple, the crews like it and it decreases the amount of time spent in the trench."
