The goal of the organization is to increase safety awareness and improve industry standards. No area is too small or too big for CSEM, from trenching safety to electrical awareness. A trench is a narrow channel that is deeper than it is wide, made below the ground level. An excavation is any man-made hole or trench that is made by removing earth. Trenching is recognized as one of the most hazardous construction activities. The greatest risk in trenching is a cave-in.
Even a small job can present serious safety hazards. The key to preventing this type of accident is good planning and inculcating trenching safety practices. Trenching safety is a detailed technical field. A trenching safety program must include a competent person to inspect, on a daily basis, trenches for possible cave-ins, failures of protective systems and equipment, hazardous atmospheres, or other hazardous conditions. Protective systems, on the other hand, are methods of protecting workers from cave-ins of material that can fall into an excavation, or from the collapse of soil structures. Protective systems include shoring, sheeting, shielding, sloping, and benching. Over 95% of corporate safety programs are re-active, in response to an acccident. Such a high rate of industrial accidents, coupled with safety regulations from many government agencies, provides CSEM a huge market in the future. CSEM works for both the insurance carriers and the insured to assure that additional exposures and financial losses are minimized. The continuing mission of CSEM, Inc. is to provide high-caliber safety training and consulting to all business entities, and covers all safety topics from trenching safety to noise protection. The company website has detailed information on different types of trainings that can be carried out depending on the customer requirements.
