SKILL SET – MSMWHS217 – GAS TEST ATMOSPHERES, RIIWHS202E – ENTER AND WORK IN CONFINED SPACES & RIIWHS204E – WORK SAFELY AT HEIGHTS – 1 DAY

COURSE SUMMARY

Skill Set – MSMWHS217 – Gas Test Atmospheres, RIIWHS202E – Enter and Work in Confined Spaces & RIIWHS204E – Work Safely at Heights – 1 day teaches 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 safely enter and work in confined spaces and for workers who are required to work at heights.

MSMWHS217 – Gas Test Atmospheres applies to situations where an individual may be required to carry out gas testing of an atmosphere prior to entering a specific area or workspace. The competency requires the person to interpret readings and take acting’s based on the interpretation. 

Working environments may be hazardous, unpredictable, subject to time pressure, chaotic and expose responders to risk, on land or water, by day or night. Workplace atmospheres may include visible and invisible hazards and hazardous surfaces.

The unit is suitable for use in the following situations:

  • 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 or monitoring as part of working under a work permit
  • open areas or holding the gas tester by hand
  • lowering the gas tester into a space, e.g. on a line.

RIIWHS202E – Enter and Work in Confined Spaces covers the skills and knowledge required to enter and work in confined spaces in the resources and infrastructure industries. It is appropriate for those working in operational roles undertaking work in confined spaces.

RIIWHS202E – Enter and Work in Confined specifies the competency required to work in a confined space (enclosed or partially enclosed) for the purpose of carrying out work or inspections. It includes the minimum criteria for competency assessment. This unit includes entry and exit procedures, assessment of associated risks, how to operate safely in a confined space which is at atmospheric pressure during occupancy and cleaning up.

RIIWHS204E – Work Safely at Heights teaches the skills and knowledge required to work safely at heights in the resources and infrastructure industries. This course is appropriate for those working in operational roles where they are required to perform work at heights.

If an employer has personnel working where they can fall from one height to another and there is risk of injury, then a provision must be made to prevent falls. Appropriate equipment must be made available and appropriate training must be given under the National Workplace Health and Safety Act and in particular; the National Code Of Practice for Managing Risks of Falls at the Workplace.

This skill set covers risk assessment, advice on the right selection and correct use of equipment, rigging and anchor systems, fall restraint, work positioning and fall arrest systems. This skill set will enable you to comply with current WHS Legislation. Trainees are trained how to correctly select height safety equipment and how to apply it.

Skill Set – MSMWHS217 – Gas Test Atmospheres, RIIWHS202E – Enter and Work in Confined Spaces & RIIWHS204E – Work Safely at Heights – (1 day) target group will be construction workers and operators who require training in safely entering and working in confined space, testing atmospheres and who are required to work at heights.
