Confined Space

RIIWHS204E - Work safely at heights 

> Training Courses > Confined Space Courses > Confined Space + Gas Test + Work at Heights

This specially designed 1 day training course covers three tickets in one convenient program -

  • RIIWHS202E - Enter and work in confined spaces

  • MSMWHS217 - Gas test atmospheres

  • RIIWHS204E - Work safely at heights.

HiReach's Nationally Recognised Training combined course covers essential WHS core competencies, and is relevant for a range of industries including the construction, maintenance, mining, manufacturing and gas industry. 

The Confined Space component


This course covers WHS policies and procedures, entering and working in confined spaces, local risk management and operating breathing apparatus in resources and infrastructure industries. A Confined Spaces course will give you the skills to work safely in enclosed or partially enclosed spaces held at atmospheric pressure during occupancy. This course meets the requirements of State/Territory WHS Regulators and Australian Standard AS 2865-2009.


Course outline:

•    Plan and prepare for entering and working in confined spaces
•    Enter and work in the confined space
•    Exit confined space
•    Clean up
•    Identify hazards
•    Assess risk and identify unacceptable risk
•    Identify, assess and implement risk treatments
•    Complete records and reports
•    Conclude operations

The Gas Test Atmospheres component


This course component is for people who may be required to carry out gas testing of an atmosphere prior to entering a specific area or workspace, including:

  • confined spaces

  • enclosed and partially enclosed spaces

  • hot work

  • storage tanks, silos, pits, pipes, shafts, ducts, transport vehicles and ships

  • testing as part of issuing a work permit

  • monitoring as part of working under a work permit

  • open areas

  • holding the gas tester by hand

  • lowering the gas tester into a space, e.g. on a line

Course outline:

  • Prepare for gas testing - type of gas, select and calibrate equipment, testing regime/sampling pattern, hazards from possible contaminants, hazard control methods, and appropriate PPE

  • Test gas - use equipment, interpret and report readings, monitor gas, take required action, communicate required actions

  • Maintain equipment - clean and maintain, inspect and fault-find, return equipment, and maintain records

The Work Safely at Heights component

This course component will equip you with the skills and practical experience to competently and safely work from heights to industry standards.
Having a tested, effective rescue plan for all work at heights where a fall is possible, is the law. As part of the Work Safely at Heights course, HiReach Training can assist you to develop your rescue plan.

Course outline:

  • Identify work requirements – Apply compliance documentation, identify scope and any potential hazards, adhere to OHS requirements relevant to safe working at heights

  • Identify work procedures and instructions for the task - Equipment selection and use, inspect/install fall protection equipment, install safety system, install appropriate signs and barricades

  • Access and install equipment - Fit anchor fall systems, selecting solid and reliable anchorage

  • Perform work at heights – Undertake work and manual handling of materials and equipment safely

  • Clean up area – Dismantle safety system, clear work area, store tools and equipment.
