Workers who are required to monitor gas levels in a confined space when using breathing apparatus is a highly dangerous and specific skills. Gaining the skills and knowledge to work in a confined space would already be important, but it’s even more crucial when operating self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) in a restricted space. Operating and maintaining apparatus and equipment in an irrespirable atmosphere as outlined by the Australian Standard (AS2865) is taught in the Sunshine Coast by our expert course instructors. All attendees will be fully certificated by Link Resources who are an RTO (Registered Training Organisation).
Why You Need Confined Space with Breathing Apparatus Safety Training
Whenever breathing apparatus is in use you are already working in potentially dangerous circumstances. Not only because of the lack of air, but the equipment itself and also the hazards that become more dangerous in a confined space. Confined spaces are not just tight spaces to be in like tunnels, manholes and vents, they are also spaces where access is restricted either by its location, or difficulty or access is limited (like a single entry and exit). The course will determine whether each participant has adequate skills to be able to work in these conditions, this is measured with a written theory test and practical exams.
What the Confined Space with Breathing Apparatus Course Will Teach You
Our breathing apparatus course on the Sunshine Coast will teach attendees the following skills and safety procedures for all workers operating breathing apparatus in a confined space:
- Applicable legislations and company confined space procedures
