The second day extends the workers knowledge, with more detailed instruction on the use of the gas monitor (standalone unit of competency issued), they understand the processes/responsibilities regarding issuing a permit, and they move down the rescue path, by completing CPR.  Practical – again their gas testing skills are advanced, but the confined space entry using the gas monitor to assess atmosphere is extended to a person having a confined space incident where rescue is required.  The incident is a NON TOXIC incident, and therefore the rescuer enters the space to stabilize the victim, and then if appropriate use a spreader bar and the victim is recovered from the space.   So they enact the rescue plan which has been detailed in their permit.  They have complied with permit conditions, as the space is not life threatening, and a rescue can occur by the confined space team.   They complete basic rescue training.




Courses commence every Monday & Wednesday at our Villawood training centre. The training is compliant with “The Core Training Elements for the National Standard for Safe Working in a Confined Space” and the training also covers the Australian Standard AS/NZ 2865 (2009) Safe Working in a Confined Space.  We also comply with the National Workplace Health and Safety Act by following the new National Code of Practice for Confined Spaces. Confined-spaces-Code of Practice 2022

This is a competency based programme, practical skills need to be achieved after classroom presentation of information. Skill competency can only be achieved via repetition of skills until competency demonstrated. Time is therefore a factor in attaining competency, with two days days deemed the minimum to achieve adequate competency levels.
