First AidOur course in Confined Spaces will provide you with the skills and knowledge required to conduct a quality risk assessment of the working environment. Our confined spaces course also provides you or your staff with practical experience and knowledge on how to safely enter confined spaces to conduct work-related activities.

The nationally recognised training course has been designed for people who work in or around confined spaces. Our course will be tailored to suit the practical scenarios relevant to your company’s confined space operations. Our confined spaces training course will teach you how to work in and around confined spaces in accordance with OHS regulations and Australian Standard 2865-2009 (Confined Spaces – Code of Practice February 2014 v2)

Our confined spaces training course is designed to teach learners how to determine what hazards may exist within the confined space, put in place control measures to make the work safer and carry out the work in accordance with confined space regulations and standards.

During the confined space training course we will cover both the theory and practical components of confined spaces. Our confined spaces training is only conducted by experienced emergency services and industry personnel who are fully competent in the usage of confined space equipment and in undertaking confined space rescues. Our confined space trainers have both the qualifications and current relative industry experience to walk you through the requirements of entering and working in confined spaces.

Intelligent Training Solutions teaches on-site confined space training courses throughout Victoria. In the event that your site is not suitable for training Intelligent Training Solutions will utilise our mobile confined spaces trailer that has been purpose built to simulate a number of confined spaces scenarios. Intelligent Training Solutions will tailor the practical training scenarios to suit your company’s confined space requirements. Prior to the commencement of your confined spaces training we will normally request a copy of your confined space entry permits and working in confined space safety procedures, policies and any other relevant workplace documentation used by your company in order to customise and tailor our confined space training directly to your requirements.
