The North American Excavation Shoring Association (NAXSA) has timed its inaugural Shore Up for Safety week to support National Construction Safety Week, May 1 to 5, 2023.

NAXSA's event is a week-long, nationwide mobilization of members and colleagues as lifesavers, promoting safety awareness and training through hands-on activities with customers, contractors and crews, said NAXSA President Kevin Malloy.

"The goal is to focus a full work week on reaching as many companies and workers as possible with critical information about the proper use of shoring systems — and to engage them in OSHA's Subpart P to achieve NAXSA's target of zero deaths and injuries," Malloy said.

What Qualifies as a 'Shore Up for Safety' Event?

Any excavation safety training, competent person class, toolbox talk, safety meeting or presentation.

Who Can Participate?

Everyone who wants to put safety awareness back into job planning and be part of creating a change in job site safety culture. In short, everyone willing to play their part to stop unprotected trench fatalities.

How Do We Participate?

NAXSA has created Shore Up for Safety Week online resources, including a registration page from which participants can access a comprehensive toolkit with steps, tips, topics, hard hat stickers, and hand-outs — everything members need to make their participation a big success.

Seasoned trainers and educators can choose to download from the site key items to print, use and distribute.

Anyone new to hosting such events can download the full toolkit, including the Top 10 Reasons to Participate, suggested activities and a timeline, a link to NAXSA's Local Media Relations Toolkit, hand-outs for training and education, even a set of thank you letters to accompany personalized Certificates of Participation that will be created by members (from NAXSA's template) to congratulate every participant in every outreach activity — with all participants tallied for a final national count.

Anything Else?

NAXSA also provides registered members with Shore Up for Safety stickers that deliver immediate access to safety answers and experts — a world of resources linked right to a worker's hard hat — via a QR code easily scanned with a mobile phone.

Shore Up for Safety materials position hosts, companies and workers as positive, proactive lifesavers who will bring what they learn forward to help all peers and meet all challenges they may encounter.

NAXSA was created to promote the safe and efficient use of excavation shoring practices. It was formed to represent manufacturers, engineers, rental companies/distributors, universities/educators, associates/suppliers, and government agency representatives who share the common goal of maintaining safety in the excavation shoring industry with the result of zero deaths and injuries.
