This skill set includes the unit of competency “Enter and work in confined space” which is the minimum requirement for all workers entering and working in confined spaces. The learning outcomes include, confined space awareness, legislative requirements, hazard and risk controls, tools and equipment, entry, exit and clean up procedures.
This skill set also includes unit “Gas test atmospheres” which will enable the operator to test atmospheres using a range of testing equipment in order to determine a safe atmosphere for workers. The competency requires the operator to safely take and interpret gas readings and take the appropriate actions.
The additional competency “Issue work permits”, covers the understanding and limitations of the permit system. As the competent permit issuer, you will be making decisions regarding the need for permits and ensure the conditions are implemented.
Also included, is the prerequisite MSMWHS201 Conduct hazard analysis, which will cover the creation and implementation of hazard analysis tools such as * Job safety analysis (JSA)
* Safe work method statement (SWMS)
Also included is the competency “Operate breathing apparatus” which will enable operators to check, operate and maintain breathing apparatus. This unit of competency is for workers that may require the use of breathing apparatus due to working in potential hazardous atmospheres, such as confined spaces. Operators may also require the use of breathing apparatus in an emergency situation.
Finally, to ensure all workers are current and compliant, “Perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)” is provided to ensure all operators are confident to assist in the event of an emergency involving cardiac arrest.
