Enter and work in confined spaces – Online Refresher
This unit describes a participant’s skills and knowledge required to enter and work in confined spaces in the Resources and Infrastructure Industries. It is an appropriate unit for those working in operational roles undertaking work in confined spaces.
Work health and safety is important in any field. However, for those who often travel into confined spaces, a lack of knowledge and awareness can be especially dangerous and, in some cases, deadly. Any type of work in a confined space itself could present high risks and hazards, but these risks are greatly amplified by the type of work often performed in these locations.
Prior to entering a confined work environment everyone must be trained up to the standards set by the Australian Safe Work Standard 2865. The aim of RIIWHS202E Enter and work in confined spaces is to reduce all risks and provide participants with all the skills needed to work safely in confined space. The training will also provide participants with the processes and knowledge needed to meet the standards.
This refresher also includes MSMPER205 Enter confined space and MSMPER200 Work in accordance with an issued permit (proof of holding these units previously is required to obtain competencies)
