Confined Space Training Brisbane

confined space training brisbaneWhy you need Confined Space Training?

Confined spaces pose life threatening dangers because they are usually not designed to be areas where people work.  Confined spaces often have poor ventilation which allows hazardous atmospheres to quickly develop, especially if the space is a small area.  The hazards are not always obvious and may change from one entry into the confined space to the next.

The risks of working in confined spaces include:
•    loss of consciousness, impairment, injury or death due to the immediate effects of airborne contaminants
•    fire or explosion from the ignition of flammable contaminants
•    difficulty rescuing and treating an injured or unconscious person
•    asphyxiation resulting from oxygen deficiency or immersion in a free-flowing material, such as
liquids, grain, sand, fertiliser or water.

In addition, confined space training is a mandatory requirement prior to entry, along with other additional mandatory controls by law.  Our Confined space training Brisbane course is nationally recognised and will help you develop the skills, knowledge and competency required to enter and perform work in a confined space safely and in compliance with the relevant Work Health and Safety laws.

Confined space training is usually one of the mandatory requirements for construction/mine sites prior to employment and is designed for people who work in or around confined spaces.
