MSMWHS217 Gas Test Atmospheres Training

Our comprehensive Gas Test Atmospheres training course equips you with the essential skills and knowledge needed to confidently test working atmospheres, using electronic test apparatus, to find out if the tested area is safe for the proposed work. Our Gas Test Atmospheres training is designed for individuals who may need to conduct gas testing in potentially hazardous atmospheres before entering a specific area or workspace. Participants will learn to interpret readings effectively and take decisive actions based on their interpretations. The working environments covered may include both visible and invisible atmospheric contaminants, as well as hazardous surfaces – whether on land or water, day or night. This competency is crucial for individuals who may find themselves working in confined spaces, enclosed or partially enclosed spaces, during hot work, or in diverse settings such as storage tanks, ducts, silos, pits, pipes, shafts, transport vehicles, and ships.

  • Confined spaces
