Before workers can enter enclosed or partially enclosed spaces, they need to have the necessary training. Confined spaces training courses give workers the skills and knowledge required to safely enter and work in confined spaces.

 

These spaces tend to provide limited ventilation, increasing the risk of a hazardous atmosphere. In some cases, a tight space may even increase the risk of a worker getting stuck or the risk of fire. To avoid these threats, workers should complete a confined spaces training course.

 

Who Should Attend Confined Space Training Perth?

 

Anyone who needs to enter and work in an enclosed or partially enclosed space should complete this training. It is intended for anyone who needs to deal with the dangers of confined spaces.

 

Besides workers who need to enter these areas, those who carry out inspections or supervise work inside tight areas also need to complete the training.

 

Workers in a variety of industries and settings often complete the class. Those who work in civil construction, mining, drilling, or general construction may need to enrol in a course through a registered training organisation.

 

The program does not have any prerequisites other than the need for basic English literacy. You also need to present a photo ID and show up wearing normal work clothing.

 

The reason for this course is to reduce the risk of injury in confined spaces. Most accidents in enclosed or partially enclosed areas occur due to a lack of training.

 

A confined space is defined based on a specific set of criteria. Enclosed or partially enclosed areas that are not intended for human occupancy may qualify. It must also meet one of these additional requirements:

 

  • Oxygen concentrations outside the safe range
  • A concentration of airborne contaminants outside the safe range
  • A concentration of flammable contaminants that may cause fire or explosion
  • A risk of engulfment

 

You may come across these potentially dangerous areas in a variety of settings including:

 

  • Boilers
  • Pipes
  • Degreasing pits
  • Wells
  • Process vessels
  • Storage tanks
  • Vats
  • Abandoned tunnels

 

If you are unsure whether you need to complete the class, speak with your health and safety representative or immediate supervisor. Your employer has a responsibility to ensure that you complete any required safety programs.

 

Besides this program, you may need to complete additional training depending on your work setting. For example, you may need to complete training for gas test atmospheres. RIIWHS202D is also a prerequisite for RII30915 (Certificate II in Civil Construction) and RII32015 (Certificate III in Drilling Oil/Gas).

 

How Often Is Confined Space Training Required in Perth?

 

After successfully completing the training, you receive a statement of attainment, which does not have an expiry date. The training remains valid indefinitely but most safety organisations recommend that workers complete a refresher course every two years.

 

Even with training, fatalities occur. According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, 31% of fatalities occurred after supervisors had written confined spaces entry procedures. However, 0% of fatalities involved workers using written procedures. To help reduce these risks, workers should continue to take the refresher course every two years.

 

What Is the OSH Standard for the Confined Space Course Perth?

 

Australian Standard AS 2865 is the OHS standard for working in confined spaces in Perth and the rest of Australia. RIIWHS202D Enter and Work in Confined Spaces is the nationally recognised training program that follows this standard. Workers should complete the accredited course from a registered training organisation.

 

The program covers the definition of confined spaces and the entry requirements according to AS 2865. Students also learn how to complete hazard identification, assessment, and control.

 

During the program, students also learn the latest legislation and regulations for working and entering enclosed or partially enclosed workspaces.
The program includes additional information to ensure compliance with AS 2865, including:

 

  • The roles and responsibilities of workers, supervisors, and PCBUs
  • The required permits and authority for isolating, purging, or ventilating an enclosed space
  • Risk management and hazard identification procedures
  • Recommended rescue equipment and procedures

 

After completing the program, you take an assessment to prove your competency. You then receive a statement of attainment.

 

How Much Is a Confined Space Course in Perth?

 

The cost of the class varies depending on the Perth training centre. Some registered training organisations charge $200 while others may charge $1000. However, AlertForce offers a program that combines several standards for one low price.

 

You may complete the RIIWHS202D, MSMPER200, and MSMWHS201 courses from $180. The training and assessment takes an entire day to complete and meets the requirements for confined spaces training. Organisations offer the initial training on site instead of online.

 

As mentioned, workers may need to complete the refresher course every two years. AlertForce offers this program online. It costs $60 plus GST. The online program is also self-paced. However, workers can only take the refresher course after completing the RIIWHS202D program within the last three years.
