Confined Space Entry

Entry into a confined space is one of the most dangerous workplace activities. According to WorkSafe NZ confined space work  is up to 150 times more hazardous than the same work being conducted in the open.

Statistics show more people  die trying to rescue people from confined spaces than are ever pulled out alive.

It is imperative that all personnel required to enter confined spaces understand the hazards and associated risks of this environment.

Trainees will learn how to assess a  confined space, assess hazards and risk 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.

Where possible, we will apply your company procedures during training.
