Learning Path

The training will begin with some online presentation slides. This will give the trainee an introduction into confined space training / the dangers / equipment that will be used. The trainee will be given their own rescue harness, this harness as a rescue loop that will allow the person to be attached to a connector to be lowered down into the confined space via a tripod or rescue davit. The trainee will be shown how to conduct safe level checks for any harmful gases using a gas monitor that could cause issues when going into the confined space. The trainee then will be introduced to using Escape sets and their purposes and how to use them. Also, the trainee will be introduced to the different BA (Breathing Apparatus Sets) that could / will be used in different confined space work / situations. The trainee will be shown how to clean / check the equipment for damage before use.

The trainee will then put on their harness / BA equipment and walk around the premises to get an understanding / feel for the equipment. Each person will take turns being elevated / lowered by a tripod through the use of the rescue loop on their harness. The trainees will then be shown the confined space tunnel in which they will do a number of tasks as laid out by the trainer. After this a BA trailer will be introduced and the trainees will do another set of tasks as laid out by the trainer.
