SKILL SET – RIIWHS202D – ENTER AND WORK IN CONFINED SPACES & MSMWHS217 – GAS TEST ATMOSPHERES – COMBINED CONFINED SPACES – 1 DAY

COURSE SUMMARY

Skill Set – RIIWHS202D – Enter and Work in Confined Spaces & MSMWHS217 – Gas Test Atmospheres – 1 day teaches the skills and knowledge required to entering and working in confined spaces in the resources and infrastructure industries. It includes planning and preparing for entry of confined spaces; entry and working in confined spaces, exiting confined spaces and cleaning up.

This skill set 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. It includes entry and exit procedures, assessment of associated risks and how to operate safely in a confined space which is at atmospheric pressure during occupancy.

MSMWHS217 – Gas Test Atmospheres covers 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.

It 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 required the person to interpret readings and take actions 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.

  • confined spaces
  • enclosed and partially enclosed spaces
  • hot work
  • storage tanks, silos, pits, pipes, shafts, ducts, transport vehicles and ships
  • testing as part of working under a work permit
  • open areas
  • holding the gas tester by hand
  • lowering the has tester into a space, e.g. on a line

Skill Set – RIIWHS202D – Enter and Work in Confined Spaces & MSMWHS217 – Gas Test Atmospheres – 1 day target group will be construction workers and operators who require training in safely working in confined space and testing atmospheres.
