Course Overview

Note: This is our basic course which gives you the skills to review a risk assessment, enter a confined space in accordance with an issued permit to conduct work, and conduct gas testing. For more advanced confined space training including hazard analysis and the issuing of work permits and supervising confined space operations, see our Confined Space 2 day course. This advanced training is required for anyone who may be required to control the works in the space via permit issuing or otherwise supervise confined space operations.


This nationally recognised training course is designed for people who work in or around confined spaces. The course can be tailored to suit the practical scenarios relevant to your company’s confined space operations. 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 confined space hazards and control risks
  • Enter and work safely within confined spaces according to an issued permit
  • Operate various confined space safety equipment
  • Conduct gas testing of the atmosphere

What is a confined space?

Regulation 3.82 of the Occupational Safety and Health Regulations 1996, defines a confined space as an enclosed or partially enclosed space which:

  • is not intended or designed primarily as a workplace; and
  • is at atmospheric pressure during occupancy; and
  • has restricted means for entry and exit;

and which either:

  • has an atmosphere containing or likely to contain potentially harmful levels of contaminant;
  • has or is likely to have an unsafe oxygen level; or
  • is of a nature or is likely to be of a nature that could contribute to a person in the space being overwhelmed by an unsafe atmosphere or contaminant.

Examples of confined spaces include (but are not limited to):

  • Storage tanks
