Confined Space Entry
Unit Standards: US 17599 and US 18426
The hazards common to confined spaces can be difficult to detect without knowledge and specialist equipment. Anyone who enters a confined space must have a good understanding of the special hazards and control measures involved.
Work in confined spaces is potentially very dangerous — there have been many fatal accidents in confined spaces in New Zealand. Every detail must be carefully planned and managed to ensure the safety of everyone involved.
This course is essential for supervisors and managers who are responsible for planning and managing work in confined spaces, and workers who are required to, or might unknowingly, enter a confined space.
We strongly recommend that Gas Testing (Unit Standard 3058) is completed alongside this course.
After completing the course, you’ll be able to:
• Identify hazards and controls within confined spaces
• Develop an emergency procedure plan
• Complete documentation required for confined space entry
• Demonstrate knowledge of confined spaces, and their permit notification and implementation requirements
• Identify and implement control measures to eliminate, isolate, and minimise the risk of hazards
• Demonstrate knowledge of monitoring and confined space testing requirements
• Describe the responsibilities and duties of people entering confined spaces or conducting observation duties for confined spaces
