Confined Space Entry Frequently Asked Questions

Can you do a confined space course online?

No- Confined Space training courses are conducted here at our Mine Training Australia premises face to face to give you the best possible training with information on the dangers associated with confined spaces and the practical steps that can be taken to eliminate or reduce the risks that they present.

How long does confined space training last?

This is a nationally recognized unit of competency. This unit of competency does not expire, but the industry recommendation is to take a confined space training refresher every 2 years.

How do you train for a confined space?

Confined Space Training includes theory and practical sessions covering:
1) Recognising hazards.
2) Implementing control measures
3) Communicating with the sentry/standby person who are outside the confined space.
4) Working safely inside the confined space
5) What to do in an emergency

What is a confined space qualification?

This one-day course is designed for workers who need to enter and work in a confined space. You will learn health and safety procedures to reduce the danger involved in working in confined spaces.

What are 5 examples of confined spaces?

Confined spaces include, but are not limited to, tanks, vessels, silos, storage bins, hoppers, vaults, pits, manholes, tunnels, equipment housings, ductwork, pipelines, etc.

What is entry into a confined space?

A confined space also has limited or restricted means for entry or exit and is not designed for continuous occupancy. Entry is deemed when your breathing zone (mouth/nose) is inside the confined space.

What steps are to be taken when working in confined spaces?

Step 1 - Identify the space and requirement to enter
Step 2 - Identify and eliminate all hazards
Step 3 - Ensure the confined space is safe to enter
Step 4 - Enter and work in the confined space
Step 5 - Monitor the confined space for hazards
Step 6 - Exit the confined space

What 3 control measures are mandatory when entering a confined space?

• The confined space is isolated and test for dead performed.
• Oxygen content is within safe limits and a hazardous atmosphere (toxic gases, flammable atmosphere) is not present.
• Ventilation equipment is set up and operating properly if required.

How long does confined space certification last?

The length of time that a confined space certification lasts in Australia can vary depending on the employer.
Confined space training is typically provided by private training organizations that are approved by the state or territory regulators. The certification is usually valid for a period of 3 years after which the person must be re-certified.
It's important to note that some employers may require more frequent re-certification. Therefore, it's important to check with the specific employer to find out how often you need to renew your certification.
It's also worth noting that even with a valid certification, employers still have the responsibility to evaluate their employees skill and knowledge and ensure that they are operating safely in a confined space.

When is a confined space permit required?

A confined space permit is required when an employee is going to enter a confined space, which is defined as an area that is not intended for human occupancy, has limited means of entry or exit, and is not designed for continuous employee occupancy.
The Work Health and Safety (WHS) regulations, which are enforced by the state and territory regulators, specify that a permit is required for entry into a confined space. This permit is a document that outlines the specific procedures and precautions that need to be taken to ensure the safety of the employee entering the confined space.
The permit must be issued by a person who has the knowledge, experience, and qualifications to assess the risks associated with entering the confined space, and must include the following information:
-The name and details of the confined space
-The date and duration of entry
-The names of the persons authorized to enter the confined space
-The hazards associated with the confined space
-The precautions and controls that will be implemented to protect the employee
-The emergency procedures that will be in place
-The inspection, testing, and maintenance of the equipment
-The rescue procedures in case of an emergency
It's important to note that the requirements for confined space permits can vary depending on the state or territory, but generally, the goal is to identify and eliminate or control the potential hazards of confined spaces.

How to determine a confined space?

A confined space is defined as an area that is not intended for human occupancy, has limited means of entry or exit, and is not designed for continuous employee occupancy. To determine if a space is a confined space, you should consider the following factors: 1. Is the space enclosed or partially enclosed? 2. Is the space intended or designed primarily for other than human occupancy? 3. Does the space have a restricted means of entry and exit? 4. Is the space designed or intended to be at normal atmospheric pressure while any person is in the space? 5. Could the atmosphere have oxygen concentration outside of the safe oxygen range? 6. Could the atmosphere have a concentration of airborne contaminant that may cause fire or explosion? 7. Could the atmosphere have harmful concentrations of any airborne contaminants? 8. Could there be a risk of engulfment? If you have answered Yes to question 1 and at least once for any questions afterwards (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8) the area is classified as a confined space. E.g. 1 + 4 = confined space. Examples of confined spaces include tanks, pits, silos, manholes, trenches, and underground vaults. It's also important to note that just because a space is not intended for human occupancy, it doesn't mean that it is considered a confined space. For example, spaces such as a storage room or a warehouse is not considered a confined space as they are intended for human occupancy. It's important to conduct a thorough assessment of the space to determine if it is a confined space, as the assessment will identify the potential hazards and will help to implement appropriate measures to protect the employee.

Who is a duly responsible person in signing an entry permit in an entry permit of confined spaces?

A "duly responsible person" is someone who is authorized by the employer to issue a permit for entry into a confined space. This person is responsible for ensuring that the necessary precautions and controls are in place to protect the employee who will enter the confined space.
The "duly responsible person" is typically someone who has the knowledge, experience, and qualifications to assess the risks associated with entering the confined space and to develop the necessary procedures and controls to ensure the safety of the employee. This person is usually a supervisor or manager who has been trained in confined space entry procedures and has the authority to make decisions regarding the safety of the employees.
The "duly responsible person" must be familiar with the regulations and standards of confined spaces and have the ability to identify and evaluate hazards, and establish appropriate safety procedures.
It's important to note that the "duly responsible person" should also ensure that the permit is regularly reviewed, and that any changes to the permit are made promptly and communicated to all affected employees.
