This refresher course will provide you with up to date 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 reinforce your understanding of 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.

Refresher Information:
To remain compliant with Health and Safety legislation and industry 'good practice' guidelines, students are generally required to refresh their training every two years. When booking a refresher course, Safety ’n Action will require evidence of the student's NZQA record of achievement displaying the relevant unit standard/s to the course they are attending. On successful completion of the course, the students Go Safe card will be updated and reissued with a new refresher date.
