This training is for people working in Industry, Mining, Shipping, Defence, Rural and Government sectors. Basically people in any workplace that are required to enter a confined space.
A lack of confined space entry programs, result in the deaths or injuries of a large number of workers every year. Tragically, many of these deaths are people trying to rescue their workmates who have collapsed, without proper training or equipment.
Confined Space training is required by law. It saves lives and minimises the chance of litigation.

What is a confined Space?
Confined spaces are usually found in the holds of container vessels, in pressure vessels or in underground sewers or tunnels. They are also in tanks, pits, vats, pipes, containers, chimneys, ducts, flues, silos. They can also be in wet or dry wells, shafts, trenches, tunnels. Any enclosed or partially enclosed structures.
The definition of a confined space is an enclosed or partially enclosed space that is
- Not designed or intended to be occupied by humans.
- At normal atmospheric pressure—or is designed or intended to be at normal atmospheric pressure—while a person is in the space.
- Is a risk to health and safety because it contains:
- An atmosphere without a safe oxygen level.
- Contaminants like airborne gases, vapours and dust that is harmful to humans.
A confined space is also an enclosed or partially enclosed space space that is normally safe, but could become contaminated through work carried out in the space generating harmful concentrations of airborne contaminants.
Whenever possible, the need for people to enter a confined space should be eliminated, but repairs and maintenance often can’t be done without somebody entering the space. Entry to a confined space is when a person’s head or upper body enters the space and before this happens, you should be aware of your safety obligations.
