Get an industry recognised qualification from a brand that industry knows and trusts! OHSA has for many years been engaged to consult to State Government Emergency Services with some of those activities resulting in a Minister’s Award of Excellence! We have also been engaged to develop training material and professionally develop the trainers in these Emergency Services Departments.

This course follows on from our initial OHSA Confined Space Entry (CSE1) – 1 Day Initial Course (which is designed for people who work in or around confined spaces) and covers the roles and responsibilities of the team, the confined space risk assessment process and gas testing. Working in confined spaces is a high-risk activity and has been responsible for many work-related deaths. Legislation requires that all persons with work activities related to confined space/s must undertake appropriate training and be assessed as competent, to perform those activities in accordance with Australian Standard AS2865 Safe Working in a Confined Space.

This OHSA Confined Space Entry (CSE2) – Gas Testing & Permit Issuer Course is relevant for persons who require a greater depth of knowledge of working in confined spaces and performing gas testing of atmospheres. Students should as a pre-requisite already hold the competencies in the CSE 1 course prior to enrolment into the CSE2 course.

This nationally recognised training course is designed for people who work in or around confined spaces. It is the intermediate course which allows you to conduct a risk assessment and enter a confined space to conduct work, gas testing atmospheres and conduct risk assessments. This course is recommended for anyone who is required to work in or around confined spaces and may be required to undertake a basic confined space rescue, act as a standby or operate gas detectors. We are able to conduct on-site training with either our purpose built mobile training facility or at your own workplace and tailor the course to suit the practical scenarios relevant to your company’s confined space operations. While there is a standard set of learning outcomes for the course, we understand that the context and environment in which the learning is applied is varied. It is designed to teach participants how to:

  • Identify and control confined space hazards
  • Work safely within confined spaces according to an issued permit
  • Determine what hazards may exist within various atmospheres
  • Risk assess the best work method from the hierarchy of hazard controls
  • Complete relevant risk assessments and permits
  • Operate various confined space safety equipment to allow for vertical or horizontal entries
  • Understand the effects of airborne hazards on the body
  • Use a gas detector and interpret readings
  • Discharge the obligations of a standby person, and supervise confined space operations.

Safe Work Australia’s Confined Spaces Code of Practice February 2014 states that 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:

  • an atmosphere that does not have a safe oxygen level, or
  • contaminants, including airborne gases, vapours and dusts, that may cause injury from fire or explosion, or
  • harmful concentrations of any airborne contaminants, or
  • engulfment.

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

  • Pits
  • Tanks
  • Process and pressure vessels
  • Boilers
  • Silos and other tank-like compartments
  • Pipes
  • Sewers and 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

It is a requirement to have already completed the Confined Space Entry (CSE1) Course, before enrolling into this OHSA Confined Space Entry (CSE2) – Gas Testing & Permit Issuer Course.

OHSA will supply all equipment necessary for you to undertake training. We actively encourage students to bring along their own equipment where practicable.

NOTE: There are specific language, literacy and numeracy requirements of some of the units in this course. In order to be deemed competent, participants must be able to read and correctly interpret required documentation relevant to the confined space entry, speak clearly and unambiguously in English, explain, describe and verify sometimes complex needs and issues and understand the permit requirements. Writing is required to the level of completing workplace forms and producing any required reports. Numeracy is required to the level of being able to correctly differentiate between high and low pressures and temperatures, voltages or masses and interpret gas test/monitoring results.

Participants must be clean shaven. The unit of competency demands that students “Don the apparatus in accordance with workplace procedures and the manufacturer’s specifications” The manufacturer’s specifications state: “The sealing line between head and face piece must be free of hair and foreign substances which could cause leakages”. Furthermore, AS 1715 requires users to be clean shaven. –

Participants will need sufficient physical and psychological ability to participate in practical scenario based training, which may involve crawling and climbing up, down, through or under structures or confined and restricted spaces, being temporarily suspended, wearing harnesses and other relevant PPE, lifting and carrying breathing apparatus/ cylinders, donning harnesses, dragging, lifting or carrying people or mannequins in confined and restricted environments in dark, low light or smoke filled areas.

Students should attend in safety clothing including long sleeved shirt/trousers and enclosed footwear.
