Is refresher training required?
Australian Standard 2865 Confined Spaces requires that individuals undergo reassessment at appropriate intervals. Essentially, your employer needs to have a policy outlining how often refresher training needs to be done (based on their risk assessment).
For onsite courses, why do I need to provide our policies, procedures and risk assessment?
This is so that we can make sure that our Trainer is safe, and also so that our Trainer is familiar with the processes that your business follows. We can also flag any differences between your processes and our course content, so that contradictions can be resolved prior to course commencement.
