Confined Space & Gas Testing Refresher information:

To remain compliant with Health & Safety legislation and industry ‘good practice’ guidelines, trainees are generally required to refresh their confined space unit standards training every 2 years.  On successful completion of the course the trainee’s wallet card will be updated and reissued with a new refresher date for the confined space unit standards they hold. (Please note that unit standards are not awarded or uploaded to NZQA on refresher training as attendees can only refresh units they already hold).

To get a confined space ticket, you or your company can enrol you to complete one of our confined space courses. Upon completion of the course we send you or your company contact a competency report with a certificate and a wallet card

Toxic Atmosphere. A toxic atmosphere may cause various acute effects, including impairment of judgement, unconsciousness and death. Oxygen Deficiency Oxygen Enrichment Flammable or Explosive Atmospheres Flowing Liquid or Free Flowing Solids Excessive Heat

The units of competency do not expire, but Work Safe recommendation is that Confined Space training has to be refreshed every 2 years.

Trainees will learn how to assess a confined space, assess hazards and risks associated with entering a confined space, how to conduct gas monitoring, planning a confined space entry and confined space rescue. They will then complete a confined space entry

It is standard that confined space entrants need to have eye protection, ear protection, hard hats, chemically treated protective garments, hand protection, and respiratory protection, or a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) if necessary
