Introduction:

Harness offers a one-day safety course‚ Confined Space Entry. This course covers competencies required to safely enter and work in confined spaces, successfully monitor the atmosphere for gas and work in accordance with a permit system. It provides individuals with the skills to successfully and safely undertake confined space work.
 
The assessment for this course has been designed to assess the individual to the Australian Qualification Framework, relevant Training Package, Australian and Industry expectations, as well as Commonwealth and State Legislation.
 
In the delivery of this course, our trainers focus on providing an individualised adult learning environment that considers the learner’s employment history and experience in the industry.
 

Why do you need confined space entry training?

When employees undertake confined space work, they are entering an environment that is not intended for human occupancy. This means workers are exposed to a much greater volume of risks in this dangerous atmosphere than if they were working outdoors or in an office.

Examples of confined spaces can include tanks, vats, silos, bins and vaults. There are also a number of less obvious, but no less dangerous spaces, such as open-top tanks and vats, close and unventilated rooms. In many of these spaces, heavier than air gas can be present and restrict air circulation – even with a door left open.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Successful students will be awarded the unit of competencies:
  • RIIWHS202D Enter and Work in Confined Spaces
  • MSMPER200 Work in Accordance with an Issued Permit
  • MSMWHS217 Gas Test Atmospheres

Learning Methods:

The mode of delivery for this course is face to face in a classroom environment as well as significant practical elements outside of the classroom.
In the delivery of this course, our trainers focus on providing an individualised adult learning environment that considers the learner’s employment history and experience in the industry.
Theory is presented in a supportive learner centered environment designed to provide functional theoretical knowledge that is directly applicable to real world tasks.
Learning materials provided include the Harness student handbook and participants will be advised in advance of attending the course if there are any materials to be provided by them.
 

Course Content

When it comes to CSE training, Harness makes sure that all participants leave with the skills they need to effectively and safely work in confined spaces. At all of our training facilities, participants will learn the correct bst practice procedures essential to undertaking confined space work.

While based on Australian Standard AS 2865, the courses at Harness go beyond what is required. With our experienced trainers, we can help workers and organisations meet their needs by offering comprehensive learning solutions. 

Confined Space Entry training - Risk Assessment:
Beginning with risk assessment, the course teaches people whow to account for work being done, the range of safe entry methods available, the hazards and risks involved and emergency and rescue procedures. 
Monitoring & Securing Confined Space Atmospheres:
Alongside risk assessment, our confined space course teaches participants what's needed to monitor and secure a confined space atmosphere. The curriculum includes analysis of atmospheric contaminants and levels of oxygen as well as forced ventilation and the displacement of contaminated air. 
Using Safety Equipment:
The confined space course also involves the proper use of safety equipment. Working safely in confined environments requires a number of instruments. From gas and air poisoning detection tools to respirators, best practice use of equipment is essential to health and safety.

 

Why should I undertake Confined Space Entry training with Harness?

Harness has years worth of health and safety experience stemming from the oil and gas sector. What that means is that unlike other confined space training providers, our systems and processes have been honed in one of the most dangerous and thus high-regulated sectors.

On the completion of the CSE course, participants will receive a qualification that is applicable across a number of industries. It is viewed as a benchmark in competence for any person who undertakes work in and around confined spaces.

We ensure that our students have not only the theoretical understanding but the practical experience to succeed when undertaking work from a confined space. To accomplish that, our confined space entry training program utilises state-of-the-art technology to mimic the conditions found in confined spaces.

We believe the only way to bring a new and improved dimension to safety performance is by testing the limits of participants’ ability and the only way to do this is through practical exercises in a simulated environment. Through our simulators, we can add smoke and other stress factors to test their behavioural responses.

At Harness we believe that we are a leader in the provision of safety training and our participants as well as the organisations they staff would agree. With our tailored curriculum, dedicated trainers and cutting edge facilities, we focus on constantly delivering real and effective learning outcomes to your students.
