Confined Spaces – Risk Assessment & Rescue Planning
Confined space work is a high-risk work activity that can pose a significant hazard for both workers and others who may become involved in an emergency response. Hazards in confined spaces are complex to evaluate and manage. The type of space, combined with the task to be carried out, can increase the level of risk. Confined spaces can be found in vats, tanks, pits, pipes, chimneys, silos, sewers, shafts, wells, pressure vessels, trenches and tunnels.
At Machine Safety Consulting, we are proud to offer a comprehensive range of services to help you meet the requirements of the WHS Regulations 2011, including Risk Assessments and Rescue Planning for Confined Spaces.
A confined space is determined by the hazards associated with the space, not just because work is performed in a small space. We can provide guidance by identifying confined spaces and restricted access spaces at your workplace, as well as undertaking a risk assessment and developing practical control solutions.
We can assist you with your confined space obligations and requirements including the development of rescue plans to establish first aid and rescue procedures to be followed in the event of an emergency, as well as ensuring that appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) is made available to workers.
There are specific laws about working safely in confined spaces, and we can assist in complying with these duties, in accordance with the Confined Spaces Code of Practice and AS 2865 (Safe Working in a Confined Space).
With twenty years’ experience in the Australian machine safety sector, we aim to provide a comprehensive service for Confined Spaces and have experience in a wide range of industries.
Risk Assessment and Rescue Planning for Confined Spaces is available nationally.
