Fast Facts: 

  • National client of over 5 years for confined space training and breathing apparatus training
  • We’ve partnered with Virgin Australia to provide tailored confined space entry training, height safety training, first aid training and fire warden training.
  • All confined space training materials are specifically developed for Virgin 737 aircraft fuel tank entries and specialised airline breathing apparatus equipment

Virgin Australia Engineering has well over 150+ Engineering staff strategically located on the east coast of Australia. In November 2007, Virgin Management approached Fire & Safety Australia for a meeting to discuss tailoring a confined space entry and airline breathing apparatus training course for Virgin.

Virgin Australia engineers may have to enter aircraft fuel tanks in order to complete urgent maintenance and inspections. For this reason their staff require confined space entry and airline breathing apparatus training. Previously company employees had  undertaken different confined space training courses across Australia and further had no consistency Australia wide.

We took the time to learn about their 737 aircraft and we designed a confined space training plan free of charge that incorporated all of Virgin’s photos, procedures and confined space entry permits. Fire & Safety Australia spent 1 day onsite and met with Virgin personnel. We studied Virgin’s OH&S and Confined Space Procedures off-site and we wrote a 2 Day Confined Space Entry and Airline breathing apparatus training program specifically tailored to Virgin Tech’s Safety Procedures, Safety Policy and aircraft safety requirements.

This confined space training program is specific to aircraft fuel tank entry and the aviation environment. To date we have completed dozens of confined space training courses for 100’s of participants. We also wrote the confined space reassessment training program which is carried out annually for all Virgin Tech staff.
