      What is a Confined Space?

      According to the Safe Work Australia Code of Practice, a “confined space” means an enclosed or partially enclosed space that:

      • is not designed or intended primarily to be occupied by a person; and
      • is, or is designed or intended to be, at normal atmospheric pressure while any person is in the space; and
      • is or is likely to be a risk to health and safety from:
        • an atmosphere that does not have a safe oxygen level, or
        • contaminants, including airborne gases, vapours and dusts, that may cause injury from fire or explosion, or
        • harmful concentrations of any airborne contaminants, or
        • engulfment.

      Examples of confined spaces include (but are not limited to):

      • Storage tanks
      • Tank cars
      • Process vessels
      • Pressure vessels
      • Boilers
      • Silos and other tank-like compartments
      • Pits and degreasers
      • Pipes
      • Sewers
      • Sewer pump stations including wet and dry wells, shafts and ducts
      • Shipboard spaces entered through small hatchways or access points, cargo tanks, cellular double bottom tanks, duct keels, ballast or oil tanks and void spaces

      Our Confined Space 3 Day Training course covers this.

      Australian Standard AS2865 recommends refreshing confined space training every 12-24 months.

      We can cover a refresher in Confined Space Enter And Work training 3 day as well

      Work health and safety is important in any field. However, for those who often travel into confined spaces, a lack of knowledge and awareness can be especially dangerous and, in some cases, deadly. Any type of work in a confined space itself could present high risks and hazards, but these risks are greatly amplified by the type of work often performed in these locations.

      Prior to entering a confined work environment everyone must be trained up to the standards set by the Australian Safe Work Standard 2865. The aim of Confined Space 3 Day Training course is to reduce all risks and provide participants with all the skills needed to work safely in confined space. The training will also provide participants with the processes and knowledge needed to meet the standards.
