RIIWHS202E – Enter and work in confined spaces

Confined space training is required for all workers requiring an individual to enter and work in a confined space as defined in the Work Health and Safety Legislation.

The Work Health and Safety legislation defines a Confined Space as an ‘enclosed or partially enclosed space’ which will have some or all of the following:

  • Is at atmospheric during occupancy.
  • May have restricted means for entry and exit, requiring a permit.
  • May cause engulfment.
  • Can be enclosed or partially enclosed.
  • Is not intended or designed primarily as a place of work.
  • May not have a safe oxygen level; i.e. an oxygen deficiency or excess.
  • May have an atmosphere that contains potentially harmful levels of contaminant.
  • Has special requirements regarding rescue, first aid, stand-by personnel and spotters acting as a safety officer.

An employer has a duty of care to ensure all workers are safe whilst working in/ and around a confined space. This means that the employer must manage those risks around confined space work which includes the training and supervision of those working in/ or around a confined space.

Accelerated Training offers a variety of Confined Space Training options to satisfy the legislative requirement.
