This course set is appropriate for those working in operational roles undertaking work in confined spaces in the Resources and Infrastructure Industries. It is designed to teach participants how to identify confined space hazards, work safely within confined spaces according to an issued permit and operate various confined space safety equipment.

Confined spaces are commonly found in tanks, ducts, flues, chimneys, containers or other similar enclosed or partially enclosed structures. They pose dangers because they are usually not designed to be areas where people work.

This training is required for anyone who may be required to act as a standby, operate gas detectors or to safely and efficiently enter and work in a confined space.  On completion, participants will be able to competently understand legislations and standards applicable to enter and work in confined spaces.

Additionally, the work safely at heights course set reflects the skills and knowledge required in roles undertaken by individuals who perform operational workplace tasks involving the requirement to work safely at heights in the resources, factory, construction, maintenance and infrastructure industries. It is essential for someone who works in a position where there is any risk of a fall. 

With the aim of preventing falls, working at heights training will provide you with the skills, knowledge and most importantly the confidence required to work safely at heights in the work environment safely.  

The work safely at heights course set covers applying policies and procedures, using document information to interpret and apply technical and safety information; assessing hazards and risks for working at heights and how to control them; using personal protective equipment; identifying safety systems and fall protection equipment (rigging of and anchoring systems) and checking the fitting, making adjustments and anchoring of fall protection equipment.
