CONFINED SPACE ENTRY TRAINING BRISBANE NEEDED?

WHY 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, our Confined Space Training Brisbane Course is a mandatory requirement prior to entry, along with other additional mandatory controls by law.  Our Confined Space Training Brisbane Course are held often and is nationally recognised, this course 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 Brisbane is usually one of the mandatory employment requirements for construction/mine sites and is designed for people who work in or around Confined Spaces.

WHAT IS A CONFINED SPACE?

Under the Work Health and Safety Regulations 2011 Schedule 19; a confined space means an enclosed or partially enclosed space that—
(a)  is not designed or intended primarily to be occupied by a person; and
(b)  is, or is designed or intended to be, at normal atmospheric pressure while any person is in the space; and
(c)  is or is likely to be a risk to health and safety from—
(i)  an atmosphere that does not have a safe oxygen level; or
(ii)  contaminants, including airborne gases, vapours and dusts, that may cause injury from fire or explosion; or
(iii)  harmful concentrations of any airborne contaminants; or
(iv)  engulfment;

In Queensland, Australia, the validity of a Confined Space ticket (also known as a statement of attainment) depends on the issuing organization and the specific training course completed. Generally, there is no expiry date on our Confined Space certificates, however, the employer or the work site may determine how often refresher training must be maintained, after which the worker must undergo refresher training to maintain their competency.

It’s important to note that the specific duration of validity may vary depending on the training provider and the course content. Workers should check with their training provider to confirm the duration of validity for their Confined Space ticket.

Additionally, it’s important to keep in mind that the validity of a Confined Space ticket does not necessarily guarantee competency or fitness for work in all confined space situations. Workers should always assess the specific confined space environment they will be working in and ensure they have the necessary skills, knowledge, and equipment to work safely.

In most countries, including Australia, it is illegal to work in a confined space without proper training and certification. Confined space work is considered high risk, as it can expose workers to a range of hazards such as oxygen depletion, toxic gases, and physical hazards like entrapment or engulfment.

In Australia, for example, the Work Health and Safety (WHS) Regulation 2011, section 76 Information, training and instruction for workers, require employers to ensure that workers are trained and competent before they work in a confined space. This includes providing workers with information about the hazards and risks associated with the confined space, and the procedures for entering, working in, and exiting the space safely.

In addition, workers may need to obtain a Confined Space Entry Permit before entering a confined space. This permit is issued by the employer and certifies that the worker has completed the required training and that the appropriate safety measures are in place.

Working in a confined space without training and certification is not only illegal but also extremely dangerous. It puts workers at risk of injury or death and can result in serious legal and financial consequences for the employer. Therefore, it’s crucial that workers undergo proper training and certification before working in confined spaces.

The frequency of testing a confined space depends on various factors such as the nature of the confined space, the type of work being performed, and the specific hazards associated with the space. In general, it’s recommended to test a confined space before each entry to ensure that the atmosphere inside the space is safe for workers.

The following are some situations in which confined space testing may be required:

  1. Before initial entry: Before a worker enters a confined space for the first time, the space should be tested to identify any hazards that may be present. This includes testing the atmosphere for oxygen levels, flammable gases, and toxic contaminants.
  2. During prolonged work: If workers are going to be working in a confined space for an extended period, they may need to test the atmosphere periodically to ensure that it remains safe.
  3. After any changes: If there are any changes to the confined space, such as the introduction of new equipment or materials, testing should be conducted to ensure that the atmosphere remains safe.
  4. After an incident: If there is an incident, such as a spill or release of a hazardous substance, the confined space should be tested to ensure that it is safe for re-entry.

It’s important to note that testing should be conducted by a qualified and competent person using calibrated testing equipment. The results of the testing should be recorded and communicated to all workers who will be entering the confined space.

The time limit for working in a confined space depends on various factors such as the nature of the confined space, the hazards present, and the specific requirements of the job. In general, workers should only remain in a confined space for the minimum time necessary to complete the required work.

The reason for limiting the time spent in a confined space is to reduce the risk of exposure to the hazards associated with working in such environments. These hazards may include oxygen deficiency, toxic gases, and physical hazards such as entrapment or engulfment.

There is no set time limit for working in a confined space. However, many companies and regulatory bodies recommend limiting the time spent in a confined space to no more than 15 minutes, especially if the space is poorly ventilated, contains hazardous materials, or poses other risks to workers.

In any case, it is important to conduct a thorough risk assessment before entering a confined space and to ensure that workers have the necessary training, equipment, and procedures in place to work safely. This includes monitoring the atmosphere within the space, having a rescue plan in place, and regularly checking on the workers inside the space.
