Course Content

Our confined spaces training will provide you with the skills and knowledge required to conduct a risk assessment of the working environment and provides you or your staff with practical experience and knowledge on how to safely enter confined spaces to conduct work-related activities under an issued permit.

This training addresses the theoretical component of confined space entry. It does not give you the practical skills required to enter a confined safely and as such is only applicable for refresher training not initial entry training.

It is unlawful to instruct a person to enter a confined space if they have not completed in-person training with an accredited trainer. Obeying such an instruction could endanger your safety and the safety of those around you.

This course will provide you with information about:

  1. The legal requirement for confined space entry
  2. What confined spaces are and why people enter them
  3. Entry permits
  4. Hazards associated with confined space entry
  5. Methods of controlling confined space hazards
  6. Emergency response procedures, and
  7. The different types of personal protective equipment that can be used when working in confined spaces

This course has been reviewed by a recognised subject matter expert.

It has been designed to comply with best practice national health and safety standards. Terminology has been chosen for clarity and ease of comprehension across jurisdictions. For example, ‘employer’ has been used to signify the broader term ‘PCBU’, while ‘WHS’ represents both work and occupational health and safety.

The course is suitable for people who work in or around confined spaces with content and scenarios tailored to suit your relevant work environment and operations.
