General overview

This nationally recognised training course is designed for people who work in or around confined spaces. Pinnacle are a national leader in confined space training, and this course is tailored to the major site-specific training requirements focusing on the safety procedures and practical scenarios relevant to the typical confined space operations on WA sites. While there is a standard set of learning outcomes for the course, we understand that the context and environment in which the learning is applied is varied. It is designed to teach participants how to:

  • Identify and control confined space hazards
  • Work safely within confined spaces
  • Complete relevant risk assessments and permits
  • Issue entry permits for confined space operations
  • Operate various confined space safety equipment to allow for vertical or horizontal entries
  • Discharge the obligations of a standby person, and supervise confined space operations

Trainees who need to be able to undertake confined space rescue, please see our Confined Space Rescue course.

Employers having a group of employees who have completed this course within the last 24 months may be eligible for our Confined Space Refresher program. Find out more here.

Dave is a very professional and passionate trainer with a high level of knowledge in confined space training. During my previous 9 years in the industry I can’t think of anyone more passionate about training and safety, including site training officers, safety reps and external trainers.
