This 4 day training course is for anyone who works in and around confined spaces and also requires to act as the standby operator and in the event of an emergency, carry out confined space rescue including the use of breathing apparatus. Remember, law requires every confined space to have an emergency rescue plan and MUST be able to be carried out immediately by competent rescue operators!

Confined space worker, standby and rescuer 4 day training course includes these 9 key units of competency:

RIIWHS202E  Enter and work in confined spaces 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.

MSMPER200 Work in accordance with an issued permit provides understanding and training on how permit systems work and to maintain a safe and compliant work safe

MSMPER202 Observe permit work allows the workers to act as the standby/spotter to ensure all workers inside the confined space are safe and conditions of the work permits are followed. 

MSMWHS217  Gas test atmospheres 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.

MSMWHS201  Conduct hazard analysis & RIIRIS201E Conduct local risk control which will cover hazard and risk identification within the workplace, including creation and implementation of hazard analysis tools such as
* Job safety analysis (JSA)

Do I require training to carry out works in a confined space? 

The simple answer…. YES! Here at Platinum Safety and Training, we make it easy when it comes to deciding what training you need to carry out work in a confined space. We have a range of confined space training courses to suit everyone.

Day 1 + Gas tester – Confined spaces have many hazards, however unsafe atmospheres are one of the most dangerous hazards you may face when working in confined spaces. This training program is an extension of the confined space entry course with a comprehensive understanding on how to check and use gas detectors correctly, to ensure the atmosphere remains safe at all times during confined space works. For many organisations, this training is the minimum required to work in confined spaces and is our most popular training course. Click for more information

Day 2 – All confined space works must have a minimum amount of control measures to keep workers safe. A person in direct control is required to ensure this happens and they are known as the “permit issuer”. The will have the competencies to carry out risk assessment, understand atmospheric monitoring and issue all work permits including the mandatory “Confined space entry permit”. This training course is for anyone who will be supervising and controlling confined space works. Click for more information

4 Days Training  – A very popular confined space training package. You will be able to enter and work, conduct and understand atmospheric testing and monitoring, issue and validate risk assessments and work permits and also be a competent member of the standby rescue team, which is a mandatory requirement for every confined space entry.
