Enter and Work In Confined Spaces Course - 1 Day

Our Enter and Work in Confined Space Course is for those working in confined spaces for the purpose of carrying out work or inspections in a Confined Space. You’re training includes planning and preparing for confined space entry, entering and working in confined spaces, exiting and cleaning up

The person completing this course is required to perform work tasks in a confined space. This person is not required to act as a confined space standby (Observer) or a confined space rescuer. They are simply workers who are required to work under direct supervision in the space.

The course runs everyone through the process of hazard analysis for a confined space entry. They understand the process of completing a confined space risk assessment, and the need to have a detailed rescue plan in that risk assessment.

They are instructed on the regulatory requirement for a confined space permit, and what their responsibilities are when they work under permit conditions under the WHS Act. They also realise that the confined space permit must have all hazards, controls & PPE included on it, gas test recording, an entry exit log (and the need for workers to log into and out of the space) and the detailed rescue plan that all should be familiar with.

They should understand all the potential hazards that might be present in confined spaces, what controls should be in place to mitigate those hazards. At the end of the day this person knows what should be in place for them to enter a confined spaces safely, and when they are not to not enter that space until the appropriate controls are in place.

Practical – They are required to set up, gas test, use permit, and have people enter and exit a confined space, in our case using both a tripod and a davit and winch.

Those people considering working in the mines, this is generally the course required.
