Hey your website has zero contact information, but our company info is very wrong on your site. I would really like to change that, please let me know how we can contact you...
Employee firing. Let me understand. A business owner directs an employee to go into an unsafe trench. I am assuming the trenched was not shored or benched. If this is the case I support the action against him. I have been a contractor for 51 years and have NEVER had an incident. Now that's not saying I didn't take chances in my early days, but I never put anyone who worked for me in danger. I was one of the first contractors in my area to go through the OSHA excavation and trenching competent person certification and I was fortunate to have two gentlemen teach the class who wrote the technical language for OSHA. It enhanced what I practiced and I learned valuable information which I still practice today.
