Entering confined space is potentially the most dangerous environment workers may encounter on any work site. These encompass hazardous activities such as excavation, electrical, hot work, work at heights, also water and sandblasting operations. The possibility of contaminates, such as methane, hydrogen sulphate and other gases within the confined space is a real and constant threat. This can lead to serious illness and or death if not correctly investigated and controlled.
On successful completion of this training program, participants will have acquired the skills and knowledge to enable them to control entry (stand-by persons) to confined spaces for maintenance, servicing of vessels or other necessary reasons. Work in/entry to confined spaces shall conform to relevant legislation and Australian Standard, or its authorised update or replacement.
Topics covered in this program are:
- Assess confined space for entry
