Confined-Space-Training

Confined Space Training

Confined spaces pose dangers because they are usually not designed to be areas where people work. Confined spaces often have poor ventilation which allows hazardous atmospheres to quickly develop, especially if the space is small. The hazards are not always obvious and may change from one entry into the confined space to the next.

The risks of working in confined spaces include:
• loss of consciousness, impairment, injury or death due to the immediate effects of airborne contaminants
• fire or explosion from the ignition of flammable contaminants
• difficulty rescuing and treating an injured or unconscious person
• asphyxiation resulting from oxygen deficiency or immersion in a free-flowing material, such as liquids, grain, sand, fertiliser or water.

Personnel required to enter and work in confined spaces shall be adequately trained to be able to manage the hazards and risks presented by Confined Space operations.

AVAILABLE COURSES

Confined spaces are commonly found in tanks, ducts, flues, chimneys, containers or other similar enclosed or partially enclosed structures. They pose dangers because they are usually not designed to be areas where people work.

This course is aimed at those who are required to undertake rescue operations in confined spaces, as defined in AS 2865-2009 Confined spaces. This course covers a range of confined space rescue situations being carried out as a member of an emergency response team.

This course has been designed for individuals who work alone or as part of a team as an operator required to wear breathing apparatus in their work role.  This might be because they are working in a confined space, with hazardous gases/vapours, or in an oxygen-deficient atmosphere.

This course is for those who are required to issue work permits to persons who conduct activities where hazards exist or specific procedures need to be followed and monitored to protect the safety of personnel and the integrity of plant or process.
