Life & Rescue International’s Confined Space Entry 2 day training program is designed to assist employers and employees in understanding the characteristics, hazards and legislative requirements needed to operate safely in a confined space, including operate breathing apparatus and gas test atmospheres. The program is a combination of theory and practical sessions conducted by an experienced confined space trainer.
Participants are introduced to important legislation, codes of practice and Australian Standards relating to confined spaces. The definition of a confined space will be explained.
Participants will gain important knowledge in site and equipment safety requirements, confined space entry and exit procedures, risks and regulations. Participants will be provided with information on air contaminants and toxic gases and the limitations of breathing apparatus.
Confined space equipment types, characteristics, applications and limitations will be covered as well as site isolation and site control responsibilities and authorities. Familiarisation of MSDS’s and industry terminology will also be provided.
Participants will gain knowledge and skills in identifying the range and scope of work covered by permits, checking that the right type of permit has been issued for the type of work, how to prepare for the work and undertake their work in accordance with the provisions of the permit. Important knowledge will be gained in identifying conditions which may lead to the permit being revoked as well as in the hazards associated with the tasks covered by the permit.
Breathing apparatus is covered on the second day where participants will learn how to inspect, don, operate in, remove, clean, maintain and return breathing apparatus to operational status. Throughout the training, students will be exposed to a range of hazards, malfunction of equipment, disorientation, structural hazards and exhaustion of air supply.
On the completion of breathing apparatus training, participants will have developed the skills and knowledge to safely inspect, maintain and operate breathing apparatus as a normal part of their duties at work as well as in emergency situations.
Gas detection training, also covered on the second day is designed to ensure participants can effectively test the working atmosphere to determine if it is safe for the proposed work. Gas detection testing involves the use of electronic test apparatus. Participants will be able to operate a gas monitor, interpret readings and take actions based on the interpretation.
Students are encouraged throughout the training to develop, participate and apply skills in the safe management of working in a confined space, from correctly using and inspecting equipment to safely working to the conditions of the permit. They will experience and use a wide selection of confined space equipment, tailored to suit the company's individual requirements throughout the course.
