The Enter and Work in Confined Space course is a nationally recognised training course that provides participants with the necessary skills and knowledge to safely and efficiently work in or around confined spaces. Confined spaces are commonly found in underground popes, tanks, ducts, flues, chimneys, containers or other similar enclosed or partially enclosed structures. Confined spaces do pose dangers because these areas are usually not designed for people work in and around. The course also provides participant’s with the skills to plan and prepare to enter a confined space, exiting a confined space and clean up procedures.

This course is ideal for people working  the drilling, mining, extractive (quarrying) and civil construction industries who have been identified as requiring to enter and work in a confined space.
