Objective Of Confined Space Training

A confined space course from Major Training will give you the skills to work safely in enclosed or partially enclosed spaces held at atmospheric pressure during occupancy (but not designed to be primary worksites).

Many roles require confined space training, including safety, injury prevention and maintenance personnel, engineers, risk managers, mine managers, cable installers and transport personnel.

Obtaining a confined space ticket will allow you to work within these spaces safely. Successful completion of the course will result in the issuing of a confined space ticket. Our confined space training is ideal for anyone hoping to expand their current skills or looking at new employment opportunities in QLD and beyond.

FAQ's

  • What is confined space training?

    Confined space training ensures workers have the knowledge and skills to mitigate any risks involved with working in an enclosed or partially enclosed space such as storage tanks, pressure vessels, pipes, boilers and sewers.

  • What is the difference between confined space and restricted space?

    A restricted space is generally a work area in which the only hazard is the difficulty of getting into or out of the space. A confined space is a restricted space that has hazards or potential hazards beyond just restricted entrance or exit (e.g. poor ventilation and lack of oxygen).

  • How often is confined space refresher training required?

    Major Training recommends refresher courses every 2 to 5 years after completing the initial course. The frequency of this refresher training depends on how often workers are required to carry out tasks associated with entry to and working in confined spaces. For example, refresher training under mining legislation is at least once every 5 years, while the industry standard is generally reviewed every 2 years.

  • What is the OSHA standard for confined space training?

    OSHA’s standard for confined spaces contains the requirements for practices and procedures to protect workers from the hazards of entering permit spaces. For example, employers must evaluate their workplaces to determine if spaces are permit spaces and inform exposed employees of their existence, location and the hazards they pose.
