This covers all aspects of entering and working in confined spaces. Learners will be instructed in the safe entry, work and exit of confined space having regard to the legislative and operational requirements.
This course is suitable for persons entering, persons on stand-by and persons issuing permits. This course includes the use of gas detection equipment, Self Contained Breathing Aparatus (SCBA), Harnesses, Ascent/Descent equipment etc. Confined Space Entry includes Provide CPR (HLTAID001).
All participants are required to be Medically Fit & Clean Shaven and to bring Safety Boots, Hard Hat, Overalls and gloves.
(Note: Participants are required to be clean shaven to enable a positive seal whilst wearing SCBA equipment as per AS/NZS 1715) Correct fit of a mask requires contact with smooth skin - this makes masks unsuitable for persons with beards or moustaches. Even a one day growth of a beard has been shown to allow nearly one per cent penetration of a full face-piece.
