  4. Confined Space and Gas Detection Webinar [Hybrid Training]

Delivered by webinar and accessible from anywhere in New Zealand, this course helps attendees gain the knowledge and technical skills to effectively plan, observe and safely enter a confined space. Theory element only.

This webinar covers the theoretical skills and knowledge required, 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.

This webinar covers theory only. Due to the requirements of the associated unit standard, attendees will not be awarded a unit standard until they have completed an accompanying practical session. Hybrid training allows the attendee more control over the time required to achieve the unit standard by allowing them to break up the theory and practical elements. The practical component must be booked within 12 months of completing the theoretical component, and the cost indicated here covers both elements of the training.

In accordance with the requirements to maintain Consent to Assess for the unit standards taught on this course, Safety ‘n Action had this course pre moderated and approved by our standard setting body, The Skills Organisation.
