Enter and Work in Confined Spaces
This nationally recognised course covers theoretical and practical aspects of entering and working in confined spaces.

About the course

During the course we will assist you to develop safe work method statements and risk assessments for all types of confined space entries. All workers who conduct or supervise tasks whilst in a confined space will find this course beneficial to workplace safety. This course will enable you to comply with current legislation with successful trainees receiving a nationally recognised Statement of Attainment.

Training can be conducted at your work site or off-site at our purpose-built training facility. Work at heights training is focused on fall prevention rather than fall arrest. It is designed to equip workers with the knowledge and skills to safely work in any confined space situation, primarily being aimed at general construction, maintenance, mining, large factories or other work situations where work is conducted in a place where a person needs to enter and work in a confined space.

Australian Operator Training recognises that whilst there is a standard set of learning outcomes for this course, the context and environment in which the learning is applied is varied. We will always customise the course to suit your unique workplace requirements.
