Kent Companies has utilized Efficiency Production’s Trench Safety Training multiple times with mixed user groups that include trades such as excavation, concrete, plumbing, and electrical.  The training has been relevant and applicable to all the trades and has raised their level of awareness to not only the dangers that come with working in trenches, but also the ways to safely mitigate those dangers.
