The purpose of our Confined Spaces training is to provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary to carry out confined space operations and act as a stand-by person within the Resources and Infrastructure industries.
A confined space is an area with limited entry that can be enclosed or partially enclosed. It is not intended to be an area where people occupy. Storage tanks, pressure vessels, pipes and sewers are all examples of confined spaces. Hazards such as harmful gases and dust poses a great danger to workers and due to poor ventilation within the confined space, appropriate training is essential.
This course is a high-quality designed and detailed training plan with an emphasis on risk assessment and safety precautions. This will ensure all applicants gain the level of confidence necessary to work safely in a variety of confined spaces.
This course will give you the tools necessary for planning and preparing a job within a confined space, carry out the relevant work, leave the space in a safe manner and finally the cleaning and maintenance of the area.
