Learn to safely enter and work in confined spaces

This short course covers the basics of safely entering and working in a confined space, and providing CPR.

A confined space is an enclosed or partially enclosed space which:

• is at atmospheric pressure during occupancy; and
• likely to be entered by a person; and
• may have restricted means of entry or exit.

and contains or may contain:

• an atmosphere which has potentially harmful levels of contaminant; or
• an atmosphere that does not have a safe oxygen level; or
• any stored substance except liquids that may course engulfment.

Some common examples are storage, tanks, silos, process vessels, boilers, ducts, manholes, wet wells, mixers, vats, tunnels, shipboard spaces, pits, degreasers, tankers, pipes, side entry pits and stormwater drains.

Those areas of industry currently operating in Victoria are under the control of the Occupational Health and Safety (Confined Spaces) Regulations 2007.
