RIIWHS202D Enter and work in confined spaces

Information about the course:

This unit covers the entering and working in confined spaces in resources and infrastructure industries. It includes planning and preparing for entry of confined spaces; entry and working in confined spaces, exiting confined spaces and cleaning up.

This unit specifies the competency required to work in a confined space (enclosed or partially enclosed) for the purpose of carrying out work or inspections. It includes the minimum criteria for competency assessment. This unit includes entry and exit procedures, assessment of associated risks and how to operate safely in a confined space which is at atmospheric pressure during occupancy.

This unit can be completed as a stand alone course or as part of a skills set. There are several skill set options available.

Target Audience

The target group will be construction workers requiring training in safely working in confined space at worksites within:
  • Civil construction
  • Coal mining
  • Drilling
  • Extractive industries
  • Metalliferous mining
People who supervise but do not necessary enter confined spaces need to be aware of the risks and equipment checks that need to be in place to adequately protect people under their control.
 

Prerequisites:

There are no prerequisites for this unit.

Award Issue

Students who successfully complete this nationally recognised training will be awarded the statement of attainment:

  • RIIWHS202D Enter and Work in Confined Spaces

Course Duration:

  • Full course: 7 hours face-to-face training
  • Refresher course: 7 hours face-to-face training
**There is no legislative requirement for refresher training for any units of competency from National Training Packages. It is suggested that refresher training for enter and work in confined spaces could be conducted every 3 years. This refresher training is at the discretion of the employer.
 

Pre course study options:

There is no pre course study required for this course.
