Our Experience With Alcoa

Fast Facts:

  • We have partnered with Alcoa to deliver tailored height safety training and confined space entry training for over 3 years
  • We have completed confined space audits and confined space risk assessments across the entire site and reviewed over 400 confined spaces to determine as to whether or not they meet the AS2865 confined space definition
  • We provided our confined space entry training trailer to ensure that all training was completed within a safe environment

Alcoa Rolled Aluminium which is located in Yennora NSW has over 160 staff members on-site. The primary operation of the plant is the casing and rolling of Aluminium products.

In late 2009 Fire and Safety Australia was approached by Alcoa to review their confined space training and confined space safety procedures. In early 2010 we have reviewed, updated and changed Alcoa’s confined space procedures and started a roll out of a new tailored confined space entry training program.

This program has been rolled out to over 125 personnel across Alcoa in NSW. This program involved a full review and needs analysis of Alcoa’s confined space training requirements in early 2010.

Throughout 2012 and 2013 FSA has completed confined space refresher training on-site and delivered the same level of quality training that Alcoa is used to.

We have been able to tailor our confined space training courses and our height safety training courses directly to the requirements of Alcoa NSW. The training is tailored directly to the needs of Alcoa’s confined space risks. This involved particular attention to the hazards of working around confined spaces that contain molten aluminium. Specific PPE training was included for these personnel.
