Confined Space Training

Confined Space Training and Supervise work in confined spaces

The Confined Space Certificate (RIIWHS202D – Enter and Work in Confined Spaces) fulfills the mandatory training requirement under Workplace Health and Safety Legislation for persons intending to enter and work in confined spaces.

Note: Re-training or refresher training should be provided as appropriate for a particular workplace. The frequency of this training should depend on how often workers are required to carry out tasks associated with entry to or work in confined spaces. The common industry standard is to refresh every 2 years.
