Gas test atmospheres

December 31 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm


MSMWHS217 – Gas test atmospheres




It applies to situations where an individual may be required to carry out gas testing of an atmosphere before entering a specific area or workspace. The competency requires the person to interpret readings and take actions based on the interpretation.

The working environment may be hazardous, unpredictable, subject to time pressure, chaotic and expose responders to risk, on land or water, by day or night. Workplace atmospheres may include visible and invisible hazards and hazardous surfaces.

The unit is suitable for use in the following situations:

  • confined spaces
  • enclosed and partially enclosed spaces
  • hot work
  • storage tanks, silos, pits, pipes, shafts, ducts, transport vehicles and ships
  • testing as part of issuing a work permit
  • monitoring as part of working under a work permit
  • open areas
  • holding the gas tester by hand
  • lowering the gas tester into a space, e.g. on a line.
This unit of competency applies to an individual working alone or as part of a team or group and working in liaison with other shift team members and the control room operator, as appropriate.
No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at this time.

Course Delivery

At Civil Safety, we understand that time matters. Therefore we have adapted our Gas Test Atmospheres course so you are only required for 1 day at one of our training facilities. This is because we use a blended delivery method, where you complete the theory component online anytime before coming in for your practical training face to face. 

During your studies, you will receive feedback after each assessment and the Trainer/Assessor will be available to discuss the feedback or provide additional assistance or direction as appropriate.
