Enter & Work in Confined Spaces

This course is a must for those working in operational roles undertaking work in confined spaces. Confined spaces can be found in vats, tanks, pits, pipes, chimneys, silos, sewers, shafts, wells, pressure vessels, trenches and tunnels.

Cover the skills and knowledge required to enter and work safely in confined spaces, including safety requirements, signage, equipment use, maintaining communication, exiting, clean up, record keeping and legislation.

This course meets the requirements of Australian Standards AS/NZS 2865-2009 Confined Spaces.

Upon successful completion of assessment(s), students will be awarded a Statement of Attainment for unit(s): RIIWHS202E Enter and work in confined spaces.



Technically, this certificate does not expire; however, WHS legislation mandates that competencies must be regularly re-assessed for working in confined spaces.

Refresher training is advised every two years due to changes in Australian and Industry Standards, WHS legislation, Regulations and Codes of Practice as well as technology and equipment.
