Many companies, employers and principles require that all persons who are working in confined spaces hold the below units. We pride ourselves in being able to provide confined space and gas testing training to ensure competency for people to work safely in confined spaces.

Confined Space and Gas Detection Training  

NZQA 18426 - Demonstrate knowledge of hazards associated with confined spaces - Level 3, 4 Credits

NZQA 17599 - Plan a confined space entry - level 4, 5 Credits

NZQA 25510 - Operate an atmospheric testing device to determine a suitable atmosphere exists to work safely- Level 3, 4 Credits

OPTIONAL:

NZQA 3058 - Perform gas tests for an energy and chemical plant - Level 4, 5 Credits

Course overview:

This course will provide you with the skills and knowledge, as an entrant or observer, to identify the types of confined spaces and hazards and risks associated with working in a confined space.  It will also cover the atmospheric testing and equipment required to establish a planned and safe entry, as well as the correct emergency procedures in the event of a rescue.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Demonstrate knowledge of confined spaces, and their permit notification and implementation requirements.

  • Identify control measures to  isolate, eliminate, and minimise the risk of hazards in confined spaces.

  • 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.

  • Identifying hazards and controls within confined spaces.

  • Develop an emergency procedure plan for a confined space.

  • Complete documentation required for confined space entry.

  • Demonstrate knowledge of atmospheric testing in potentially hazardous environments.

  • Conduct atmospheric tests.

  • Interpret and respond to atmospheric testing results.

Optionally: 

  • Demonstrate knowledge of gas testing and related hazards in the energy and chemical industry.

  • Perform gas tests in an energy and chemical plant.

  • Interpret and respond to gas test results in an energy and chemical plant.

Refresher Training

The criteria for refresher courses remain the same as previously, the learner must already hold the Unit Standards they are refreshing.

Refresher training is not a legal requirement; however, it is strongly recommended to ensure compliance with the Health & Safety Legislation and its industry "good practice" guidelines.

It is generally seen as good work practice that trainees refresh these unit standards every 2 years.  Duration of this course is 4 hours and will cover the unit Standards and a practical exercise to reinforce the trainee's knowledge on working in a Confined Space & Gas Testing.  (The practical exercise can be replaced with our Workplace verifier process - This process is simple; a workplace verifier confirms the competency of the learner performing the tasks being refreshed by completing our Attestation form).
