Eric Giguere – Buried Alive!
In “Eric Giguere: Buried Alive,” watch and listen to a short excerpt from Eric’s heart wrenching, yet inspiring presentation given around the country, and this case, presented to the audience of the United Rentals Trench Safety Expo in Chicago in 2019. Eric never imagined that being buried alive in a trench collapse could happen to him – in just the blink of an eye. He realizes that it is a miracle he is alive today and able to share his story. He now dedicates his life and career to promoting a safety culture to excavators and laborers all across the country. Teaming up with United Rentals, Eric brings real life insight and a passionate reason to take trench safety seriously. He noticeably grabbed everyone’s full attention from the very start as part of this United Rentals Competent Person Training safety seminar. There is no doubt that the audience of excavation professionals left the expo with a different mindset towards trench safety, and unique presentations like this are a good example of how companies with a good damage prevention culture maintain it within their employees.
