- Hazards and risk assessment
- Entry permits
- Advanced atmospheric monitoring
- Safe use of heights equipment
- Breathing apparatus
- Confined space entry operations
- Emergency response and recovery
This is a comprehensive course that provides a thorough grounding in confined space safety. It is based on the national training package units:
- DEFWHS010 Identify Confined Space
- DEFWHS011 Enter Confined Space
- DEFWHS012 Test Confined Space Environment
- DEFWHS013 Control Confined Space Entry
