About EUSR Categories 3, 4 & 5 - Install, Inspect & Remove Timber, Steel and Proprietary Excavation Support Systems *Refresher*

This refresher course re-introduces the learner to the theoretical and practical dangers of excavation work. Examples of areas covered are but not limited to the HSE's HSG150, HSG 47 guidance, the Construction Industry Research and Information Associations report. 

Learners will be refreshed on the necessity for identifying various ground conditions, and the variety of methods for utilising the appropriate ground retention system(s).

This course is highly practical in nature. Candidates will be practically assessed whilst installing ground support systems in a ‘live dig’ environment. We do not train in false environments (no concrete pits).
