Glanville Training offers the EUSR Deep Excavation safety course designed to equip learners with both theoretical knowledge and practical skills to mitigate the risks associated with deep excavation work. This course is tailored for a diverse audience, including managers, supervisors, safety professionals, and operatives responsible for overseeing or performing tasks within excavation sites. If you are involved in the installation, inspection, or removal of shoring systems without prior formal training, this course is indispensable to enhance safety and minimise risks for yourself and your colleagues.

Course Highlights:

Participants will have the opportunity to apply their knowledge in a real-world setting, installing ground support systems within a live excavation environment.
