About Confined Space Entry

If you are working in a workplace that has a restricted means of entry or exit, it is not your normal place of work, and has atmospheric contaminants or possible engulfment risk. Any of these workspaces are classified as confined spaces; therefore you will need the appropriate training before that work commences. If you are unsure about whether you have confined spaces at your workplace, speak to your workplace health and safety representative.
