Confined Space Training

Entering and working in and around confined spaces can be extremely dangerous. Many employers and employees do not recognise or underestimate confined spaces hazards,therefore are put at risk when working in confined spaces safely.

Before entering a confined space, you need to understand the hazards that may be encountered, which can include hazardous atmospheres, entrapment, engulfment, biological, and bites and stings to name a few. You may also encounter high and low oxygen levels, combustible gases, and toxic substances. You will need to understand the Legislation such as the regulations, obtain permits, gear up, and test the atmosphere within the space. Even after the space has been checked and certified as safe, you should monitor the air continuously while any workers are inside. 

Why choose Delta Training to run this course.


Our course will give you the skills to undertake a risk assessment, gas test the atmosphere to ensure it is safe to enter, enter a confined space in accordance with an issued permit to conduct work, and act as a standby person.

We are committed to teach the correct way to enter and work in and around confined spaces. This will ensure that all work is completed safely to ensure that employees are kept safe and maintain legislative compliance.  Let our experience become your experience and have us teach you how to work safely in and around confined spaces.

Delta Training can customise the course to suit your unique workplace requirementsincluding using your worksites documentation. We are also able to assist with developing relevant and compliant site documentation and sales equipment, such as gas monitoring, tripods, winch systems and harnesses etc.

What is a confined space?

Dependant on which State you are working in, there are varying definitions on what is a confined space, we recommend that you refer to your States definition of a Confined Space.

According to the Safe Work Australia Code of Practice, a “confined space” means an enclosed or partially enclosed space that:

is not designed or intended primarily to be occupied by a person; and
is, or is designed or intended to be, at normal atmospheric pressure while any person is in the space; and
is or is likely to be a risk to health and safety from:
o an atmosphere that does not have a safe oxygen level, or
o contaminants, including airborne gases, vapours and dusts, that may cause injury from fire or explosion, or
o harmful concentrations of any airborne contaminants, or
o engulfment.

Examples of confined spaces include (but are not limited to):

Storage tanks
Tank cars
Process vessels
Pressure vessels
Silos and other tank-like compartments
Pits and degreasers
Sewer pump stations including wet and dry wells, shafts and ducts
Shipboard spaces entered through small hatchways or access points, cargo tanks, cellular double bottom tanks, duct keels, ballast or oil tanks and void spaces

This course is recommended for:

Workers who will be performing confined space work,
Be involved with writing the confined spaces permit,
Use gas monitors to monitor the atmosphere in the confined space, including flammable and toxic gas levels as well as Oxygen levels,
Electrical engineers
Safety inspectors and Safety personnel
Maintenance personnel
Emergency services personnel (fire, ambulance, police)
OHS officers and Risk managers
Mine managers
Telecommunications and cable installation personnel
Transport industry workers
Any person who may have to be involved in working in and around confined spaces

CONFINED SPACES SIMULATOR TRAILERS – If you don’t have any safe simulated “Confined Spaces” to undertake the practical component of the training, we are able to provide a confined space simulator in the form of a specially designed confined space simulator trailer, one of these units can be taken to your site.

We have 2 sizes, a large  trailer size, specifically engineered for access the top and a smaller size trailer to access tight areas, yet still provide a simulated confined spaces environment.
