Confined Space Rescue Training Course to Sydney Water Standards

The Confined Space course to Sydney Water Standards is a full accreditation confined space training course conducted over three days and required for all persons involved in confined space entry on all Sydney Water sites.  To assist in understanding the HSP0001 Sydney Water Confined Space Procedure please refer to our interpretation.

Course starts every Monday morning at 8:30am at our Guildford Training Centre and occasionally on a Wednesday.

It is compliant with “The Core Training Elements for the National Standard for Safe Working in a Confined Space”, the Australian Standard AS/NZ 2865 (2009) Safe Working in a Confined Space and Sydney Water Group Procedure HSP 001 Safe Entry & Working in Confined Spaces dated 22nd July 2010.   You also must ensure you now meet the requirements of the National Workplace Health and Safety Act, and in particular the National Code Of Practice for Confined Spaces.  Confined_SpacesV2 (1)

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 three days deemed the minimum to achieve adequate competency levels.

Sydney Water trainees are also required to bring along a completed Sydney Water Fitness Statement. This can be printed off below, and filled out by a manager/supervisor. Otherwise attendance to a doctor is required.
