  • To identify the limitations of permits under which work is to be conducted.
  • To understand the importance of the (stand-by) observer role when operating as a member of a confined space work team.
  • To assess risk prior to commencing any task associated with confined spaces.
  • To select, fit and wear appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and monitor equipment necessary for the safe execution of the task.
