The Authorised Gas Tester role is critical in testing for and ensuring safe working atmospheres, in particular: permit controlled confined spaces, and prior to and during hot work.

The tasks Authorised Gas Testers are required to undertake may vary depending on the workplace operation at the time. The tasks also vary in complexity and responsibility. Therefore, the Authorised Gas Tester Standard provides delegates with an understanding of:

a) What is required for those involved with performing a test for oxygen, flammable and toxic gases up to and including working in confined spaces.
b) What is required for those involved with testing for flammable gas in preparation for hot work.
c) What is required for those who provide safety watch duties by the ongoing monitoring of a hot work site.
