Confined Space Training Sydney Overview
This 2 day confined space training Sydney includes entry and exit procedures, assessment of associated risks and how to operate safely in a confined space.
This 2 day confined space entry and standby training is appropriate for those working in operational roles where they are required to perform work in confined spaces. It is delivered in just 2 days, with a mix of classroom & practical skills learning.
This course is designed for workers who need to enter and work in confined spaces, work in accordance with a permit, conduct a hazard analysis and who may be required to act as a standby to observe the permit work, issue a permit including gas testing atmospheres.
However, in order to safely supervise and run a confined space project you may require additional training which includes operate breathing apparatus, confined space rescue and first aid training. Please see our other courses we offer under our Training tab.
What you will learn
- locating and applying relevant documentation, policies and procedures
- completion of entering and working in confined spaces that safely, effectively and efficiently including:
- obtain appropriate entry permit and instructions for performing work in confined space
- interpreting and applying safe work method statements
- apply tagging and lock out
- selecting, wearing and caring for personal protective equipment applicable to all tasks and environment identified
- entering the confined space
- using atmospheric monitoring devices prior to entering the confined space
- working in the confined space
- using atmospheric monitoring devices during confined space activity
- applying safe materials handling methods
- exiting the confined space
- remove tagging and lock out
- identifying areas that constitute confined spaces
- complying with site and equipment safety requirements
- complying with the entry and exit procedures, risks and regulations
- types of air contaminants and toxic gases
- identifying the limitations of breathing apparatus
- identifying equipment types, characteristics, technical capabilities and limitations
- complying with site isolation and site control responsibilities and authorities
- locations of safety data sheets (SDS) information and application
- using confined space and industry terminology.
- Cover the skills and knowledge required to undertake the safety observer role for permits requiring a safety observer. This role may also be called a hole watcher or a fire watcher.
- Cover the skills and knowledge required to test the working atmosphere, using electronic test apparatus, to find out if it is safe for the proposed work. This includes confined spaces, enclosed and partially enclosed spaces, hot work, storage tanks, silos, pits, pipes, shafts, ducts, transport vehicles and ships, testing as part of issuing a work permit, monitoring as part of working under a work permit, open areas, holding the gas tester by hand and lowering the gas tester into a space, e.g. on a line.
- Cover the skills and knowledge required to conduct a hazard analysis. These are typically called: job safety analysis (JSA), job hazard analysis (JHA), job safety and environmental analysis (JSEA) or a safe work method statement (SWMS)
