Enter and Work in Confined Spaces and Gas Test Atmospheres
2 Days - Max 12 Students
These competencies are designed for any person that enters and works in confined spaces in resources and infrastructure industries. It includes planning and preparing for entry of confined spaces; entry and working in confined spaces, exiting confined spaces, cleaning up and any person required to test the working atmosphere to determine if it is safe for the proposed work.
Language and literacy requirements from the unit are:
- Writing is required to the level of completing written assessments.
- Reading is required to enable the determination of information through the student manual.
- Participants are required to have the physical abilities to successfully complete the practical applications of the course.
