Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to do Hazardous Areas (EEHA) refreshers?

There is no obligatory requirement for workers to be refresher-trained at fixed intervals. This is usually risk-managed by the owner or occupier of the asset.

What level of HA training do I need?

Are you a general worker who may be required to enter a hazardous area? 1-day Hazardous Areas (EEHA) Awareness Course

Are you required to install, inspect, report, and maintain electrical equipment in hazardous areas? EEHA - Installation, Maintenance and Detailed Inspection - 5 day course

Are you required to conduct detailed inspections only? EEHA - Detailed Inspection - 1 day course

Do I need a Certificate IV in Hazardous Areas to do work in hazardous areas?

There is no requirement in standards or legislation that states that you need to have a Certificate IV in Hazardous areas to work in hazardous areas. What is required, is that any work conducted in a hazardous area must be carried out by competent workers for the type of hazards in the facility.

Do I need to be an Australian licenced electrician to attend an EEHA Awareness Course?

No. You do not need to be an Australian licenced electrician to do our Awareness Course.

How often do I need to do hazardous area refreshers?

As above, this is usually risk-managed by the owner/occupier of the asset.

However, common industry practice is for hazardous area-trained electricians to attend refreshers no less than every 3 years.

If I'm supervising hazardous area workers, do I need to be competent myself?

Supervisors who are not required to carry out work on or in hazardous areas do not need to be themselves trained. However, we recommend that an EEHA Awareness course is taken.

What do I need to attend refresher training?

You need to have been previously issued with hazardous area competencies to attend an EEHA Refresher course. This course will update you on any changes to legislation, standards or industry practice. Any obsolete competencies you had been issued will be replaced by the current unit.

You will only be issued with the units you already have, that is, no new units will be issued.

What if I'm a licenced electrician in New Zealand?

You must get your Australian electrical licence. This is quite straightforward because New Zealand also uses AS/NZS 3000 Electrical wiring rules.

If you do not yet have your Australian electrical licence, you can still attend the course and we will issue you with a course completion statement. We will issue you with a statement of attainment when you produce an authenticated copy of your Australian electrical licence, at no additional cost.

What if my competency unit/s have become obsolete?

If this occurs, we recommend our Hazardous Areas (EEHA) Refresher course.

This course will update you on any changes to legislation, standards or industry practice. Any obsolete competencies you had been issued will be replaced by the current unit. You will only be issued with the units you already have, that is, no new units will be issued.

What is the scope of Site Skills Training Hazardous Areas (EEHA) training?

For hazardous area competencies, we are registered for competency units to attend to breakdowns, install, maintain, report on, conduct visual and detailed inspections and conduct testing of electrical equipment in hazardous areas for gas, dust and pressurisation.
