In all our locations!

Working in a confined space is probably more dangerous than workers think as there are many more hazards than just the obvious one of getting trapped. Other hazards in small spaces include falls (in shafts), entanglements and asphyxiation from toxic gasses. It’s clear how important all aspects of safety training are, especially when confined spaces can be required in almost any industry. Link Resources offer this course in the Sunshine Coast and as an official RTO (Registered Training Organisation), students will receive the highest level of training by the most experienced teachers available.

Why You Need Safety Training for Heights

Minimising the risks when working in tight, confined spaces is essential. Workers need to be aware of the risks before entering and be fully prepared every time. Confined spaces are defined as any space that has restricted entry methods by way of size, location or method (such as automatic lockable doors). Confined spaces aren’t all tunnels and vents, they are spaces that have very restricted access too.

These spaces where access is difficult, restricted or limited obviously mean that other regular hazards pose more of a threat since escape isn’t so easy.

Risks of fire, explosion, loss of consciousness, asphyxiation and drowning are all real dangers that workers need to be aware of when working in confined spaces. Environments like mines, factory or farm silos and vats, sewers, large trucks, industrial machinery and manholes could all present dangers. Our course will teach all workers on how to identify and best prepare for these issues in the workplace.

Expert Course Leaders

Our course leaders are experts of the highest standards and will deliver every aspect of the course to your employees in the highest detail ensuring their learning and skills are increased so they can safely work in confined spaces. These skills will last a lifetime so get in touch with us today to find out how you and your workers can benefit when working in confined spaces.

What Working at Heights Training Will Teach You

Our confined spaces training course on the Sunshine Coast will teach attendees the following skills and safety procedures:

  • Applicable legislations and company confined space procedures
  • Definitions and types of confined spaces
  • Hazard identification and risk management procedures
  • Hazardous atmospheres including gas monitoring techniques
  • Isolation, purging, ventilation
  • Roles and responsibilities of team including standby
  • Rescue equipment and procedures
  • Industry case studies

Completing this course will show proof of competency with a nationally recognised certificate to prove that they are competent to work in confined spaces. This has to be issued by an RTO (Registered Training Organisation) like Link Resources.

Who Can Apply for the Confined Space Training Course?

Australian law requires the following requirements are met by all applicants:

  • English Understanding – Effective communication is vital to absorb information during the training course. The trainee must have basic knowledge of both verbal and written English as it is required that the trainees understand the training course, which is formatted in English
  • Age – Applicants but be at the age of 18 years old and above before applying
  • Proof of Identity Must present evidence of identity before getting accepted for working at heights training
  • Unique Student Identifier – All trainees must be in possession of USI, a unique reference number given to trainees who are learning vocational education training

Frequently Asked Questions

What does Confined Space training involve?

At Link Resources, our confined space training course offers a comprehensive learning experience that combines practical demonstrations with informative presentations. We go the extra mile to ensure that both employees and supervisors gain a deep understanding of the risks associated with working in dangerous and tight areas. Throughout the course, participants will acquire vital skills and knowledge, including:

– Identifying and comprehending potential hazards and health risks
– Understanding the essential details required for obtaining an entry permit
– Familiarising themselves with the hierarchy of control measures to effectively minimise risks

Our confined space training program adheres to the nationally recognised standards: RIIWHS202E – Enter and work in confined spaces, MSMWHS217 – Gas test atmospheres, MSMPER205 – Enter confined space, and MSMPER200 – Work in accordance with an issued permit. Whether you are a worker who enters or operates in a confined space, a supervisor responsible for monitoring workers, or an individual involved in hazard identification and risk assessments, completing this program is crucial.

How frequently is Confined Space training required?

Before individuals can enter and work in confined spaces, they must successfully complete a training program accredited by an approved RTO (Registered Training Organisation) like Link Resources. Upon completion, participants receive a certificate, providing proof of their competency in the relevant unit. While the certification does not have an expiry date, it is recommended that employees undergo refresher training every two years as per industry best practice.

Is Confined Space training mandatory?

Absolutely! Under the confined space regulations and Health & Safety at Work Act, it is vital to ensure that individuals carrying out planned work activities, are competent, and are adequately trained. By undertaking the relevant training, you significantly reduce the risk of fatalities and injuries occurring in confined spaces. If you find that your competency or understanding has diminished before the two years refresher recommendation, we encourage you to consider undergoing refresher training to maintain your skills and knowledge sooner.

What is a confined space?

A confined space is a space that is enclosed, has limited entry, and exit points, and is not designed for continuous occupancy. It may have potential hazards such as restricted airflow, toxic atmospheres, or the risk of engulfment.

What are the potential hazards of working in confined spaces?

The potential hazards of working in confined spaces include poor air quality (lack of oxygen, presence of toxic gases), engulfment, entrapment, electrical hazards, and physical hazards such as heat stress or confined space configurations.

How is a confined space different from a permit-required confined space?

A confined space becomes a permit-required confined space when it contains certain hazards that could endanger workers. These hazards may include the presence of hazardous gases, potential for engulfment, or other serious risks. A permit is required before entry into such spaces.

What regulations and standards govern confined space entry?

Confined space entry is regulated by Work Health and Safety (WHS) regulations in Australia.

What are the roles and responsibilities of individuals involved in confined space entry?

The roles and responsibilities may include the entry supervisor, attendant, and authorised entrants. The entry supervisor oversees the entry, the attendant monitors workers inside the confined space, and authorised entrants are the workers who enter the confined space.

What personal protective equipment (PPE) is necessary for confined space entry?

Personal protective equipment for confined space entry may include a full-body harness, lifeline, gas detectors, protective clothing, head protection and on occasions, a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).

How do you assess the atmospheric conditions inside a confined space before entry?

Before entry, the atmospheric conditions inside the confined space must be tested using appropriate gas detectors to check for oxygen levels, flammable gases, and toxic substances.

What are the methods for controlling hazards in confined spaces?

Hazard control methods may include proper ventilation, lockout/tagout procedures, the use of proper PPE, and implementing a confined space permit system.

What is a confined space entry permit, and when is it required?

A confined space entry permit is a written authorisation that allows workers to enter a confined space. It is required for permit-required confined spaces and outlines safety precautions and entry procedures.

How do you establish and maintain communication while inside a confined space?

Communication can be maintained through various means, such as two-way radios, hand signals, or a designated signal line.

What are the rescue procedures for confined space emergencies?

Rescue procedures must be in place before entering a confined space. These procedures include having a trained rescue team on standby and a proper rescue plan.

What are the procedures for securing and isolating a confined space during entry?

Securing and isolating a confined space involves locking and tagging out all potential hazards and ensuring that unauthorised individuals cannot enter the space during the entry process.

How do you ensure adequate ventilation in a confined space?

Adequate ventilation can be achieved by using mechanical ventilation equipment to supply fresh air and remove any hazardous gases.

What are the best practices for confined space entry and exit?

Best practices include proper planning, continuous monitoring of atmospheric conditions, using the buddy system, and ensuring proper rescue procedures are in place.

How do you identify and mitigate potential engulfment hazards?

Potential engulfment hazards can be identified through a risk assessment, and mitigation measures may include proper barriers, warning signs, and equipment securing.

What are the procedures for monitoring and maintaining air quality in a confined space?

Air quality should be continuously monitored during confined space entry using gas detectors, and workers should exit the space immediately if hazardous conditions are detected.
