Gas Detection Training - Course Dates
Gas Detection Training
The biggest killer in a confined space is the atmosphere. The only way to determine atmospheric quality is through gas detection. Remember your nose is only an odour detector, it does not detect gas. The gases we are looking for fall under the categories of toxic, flammable and oxygen excess or deficiency. Training is conducted on a Thursday from 12:30pm – 4:30pm, once per month, see dates above.
You can combine this training with breathing apparatus training, which occurs in the morning. click here for the combined course
- Be capable of explaining how the respiratory system works and how certain toxic gases effect persons that are exposed to them
- Be capable of assessing the hazards associated with toxic, explosive and oxygen deficient or enriched environments
- Be able to operate, zero/span, delete data, recall data, accuracy check and safely use gas detection equipment
- Arrange for professional assistance when required to evaluate atmospheric hazards due to the situation being beyond the individual or organisations capabilities.
During the training all staff will recieve a manual, and will practically operate common 4 gas monitors.
Upon successful completion of the training, the participant will recieve a certificate of competency in:
MSMWHS217 Gas Test Atmospheres
This training can earn participants Continuing Professional Development points (CPD). For more details click here
