Confined Space Entry - 1 Day Course.

This course would be typically applicable to persons in industry with confined space applications where some, but not extensive atmospheric management may be required to conduct works in and around a confined space

NOTE:  Where significant issues revolve around use and management of atmospheric detection equipment and breathing apparatus, either as Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) or air line supplied breathing equipment, then our other option of a 2 day course should be utilised. This 2 day course additionally provides theoretical and practical; application of breathing apparatus and atmospheric management equipment.

Fire Training and Safety Services provides nationally recognised training for workers required to enter confined spaces as a structured format at a nationally accredited level utilising competencies from a National Training Package. Units of Competency selected from the registered Training Package to manage Confined Space training are as follows:

Day 1 of Confined Space Training

Enter Confined Spaces.                                     MSMPER205

Work in accordance with an issued permit.    MSMPER200

 

This initial or refresher training for workers, stand-by persons and those preparing documentation (such as permits etc) and over-seeing more complex issues such as respiratory protection and atmospheric management, surrounding the operations of confined spaces and covers the following topics delivered in both classroom/workshop and practical application.

Day 1

  • Legislation, applicable standards, company policies and philosophy.
  • Identifying and performing Risk assessments.
  • Control of Risks.
  • Correct selection, use and maintenance of safety equipment required for safe working in confined spaces.
  • Specific equipment, such as tripods and winches etc
  • Introduction to Atmospheric monitoring equipment and interpretation.
  • Interpretation of testing results and Exposure Standards
  • bump testing and calibration of equipment.
  • Chemical contaminants as gases and vapours, ventilation and purging.
  • Isolation processes.
  • Confined Space Entry and other permits.
  • Practical rescue applications.

Day 2 of Confined Space Training

Where more extensive operations are required the second day provides additional competencies and practical application.

Day 1 training as above is conducted, and Day 2 introduces the following Competencies and materials

DAY 2

Gas test atmospheres                                                         MSMWHS217

Operate breathing apparatus                              MSMWHS216

 

Day 2

  • Operational principles, user maintenance of SCBA sets and ancillary equipment.
  • Irrespirable atmospheres and Respiration physiology.
  • Practical operation of SCBA sets.
  • Airline supplied sets
  • Specific hazardous situations
  • Entrapment and other Standard Operating Procedures.
  • Practical exercises with emphasis on rescue

 

Substantial course documentation will be provided to each participant to support the course and your further operations. Assessment is provided in areas of both theoretical and practical applications and successful participants will be issued with nationally recognized documentation and wallet card reflecting the units delivered during the course.

Neat workplace clothing with enclosed steel cap footwear is required for the course. Participants in this course should be clean shaven and medically fit as the course will include physical activity.
