Have your employees been trained in Confined Space Training?

The prime causal factor for 92% of confined space fatalities in the last 15 years in Western Australia was ‘inadequate confined space entry training’.

This is the optimal time to provide your staff and contractors with the Confined Space Training that drastically reduces risks and increases competency. Kick off 2016 with the correct procedures and knowledge in place to ensure the year ahead is a safe and productive one. Unfortunately, contractors have a far higher risk of injury than employees in the workplace. This is because they are less familiar with the site and the specific confined spaces and procedures involved. It is important to ensure all staff including the contractors that work on your project have been adequately trained. This course will reduce risk of fatalities and injuries as employees learn the identification, hazards, risks and safety control measures applicable to confined spaces.

Confined Space Training will increase knowledge and improve the confidence of your staff within your organisation. The course is a combination of theory and practical training and assessment. In this interactive training your employees and contractors will learn:

The planning and preparation process of working in confined spaces

Learning about the different types of confined spaces and the specific terminology.

Hazard identification

Understanding the different types of hazards.

Understanding the safety precautions involved.

Different hazardous gases testing and identification.

Practical Practice

Undertaking practical practice with different equipment.

Undertaking entry and exit processes.

Completing paperwork.

Finishing and clearing

Ensuring the work site is clear to be put back into service.

Ensuring the work area has been cleared accordingly.
