Course Overview

Working in confined spaces is a highly hazardous activity and is governed by various legislative instruments.

Confined spaces are commonly found in tanks, ducts, flues, chimneys, containers or other similar enclosed or partially enclosed structures. They pose dangers because they are usually not designed to be areas where people work. The hazards are not always obvious and may change with each entry into the confined space.

This course is based on this applicable State legislation to provide you with the skills and knowledge to safely work in confined spaces.

This course also covers the skills and knowledge required to undertake the safety observer role for permits requiring a safety observer. This role may also be called a hole watcher or a fire watcher. Safety observers can stop permit work, but do not have the authority to restart it.
