Trust Workplace Access & Safety to Conduct Your Confined Space Inspection
If your employees or contractors need to enter a confined space to carry out work, you have a legal obligation to keep them safe in line with Australian Standard AS 2865-2009 Confined Spaces. There are many dangers associated with working in a confined space including poor ventilation and the potential of hazardous atmospheres forming although the hazards are not always immediately apparent. Furthermore, the hazards may vary depending on the type and size of space. Risks associated with working in confined spaces include injury, impairment, loss of consciousness and death.
Before entering a confined space, the internal atmosphere should undergo a confined space inspection. This requires using calibrated direct-reading instruments to test for oxygen content, flammable gases and vapours and potential toxic air contaminants.
In addition to undertaking inspections of height safety systems, Workplace Access & Safety have the necessary experience and expertise to carry out confined space testing.
Alongside our confined space audits and testing we can also conduct confined space equipment inspections on all safety equipment used in confined spaces. This can include:
- Karabiners and rope grabs
