Safety Considerations for Confined Space Cleaning

Safety is paramount when entering and cleaning within a confined space. Industrial Clean SA are accredited to Australian standards. We work under the Safe Work Australia Code of Practice, and all our staff are trained and licensed for entry into and working within confined spaces. Our confined space accreditation and training covers all aspects of confined space cleaning, including:

  • Entry into and working within confined spaces
  • Atmospheric testing and monitoring
  • Respiratory Protection
  • Rescue and standby protocols
  • Permit systems
  • Logging and recording information to comply with occupational health safety and environmental guidelines.

Our systematic approach to safety places a strong emphasis on risk assessment and management, strategic project planning and management, safety protocols, onsite process controls and ongoing evaluation of outcomes.

We provide all the specialised safety support equipment required to work within confined spaces including entry paperwork, air monitoring devices, respiratory protection, harnesses and lanyards and any other PPE required. We do not clean spaces where air feed breathing apparatus (BA) is required. Our strict safety management systems and policies ensure our staff and clients are kept safe and include the following procedures prior to entry:

  • Risk Assessment: SWMS and JSEA, to identify the hazards and associated risks related to the cleaning method used, and to document the emergency response procedures for each job.
  • Signage and Barricading: To prevent persons not involved in the work from entering the area and to allow access only to authorised entrants and standby persons.
  • Isolation of Hazards: Isolation involves locking, tagging and closing the isolation point to ensure it is not accessible during confined space work.
  • Cleaning, Purging & Ventilation: To ensure the confined space atmosphere is clear of any contaminants that could harm any persons entering the space.
  • Atmosphere Testing & Monitoring: Prior to entry the atmosphere is tested and recorded – external to the confined space, around entry points and immediately inside.
  • Completion of an Entry Permit: To ensure that a safe work system is in place as well as a means of communication between site management, supervisors and those who carry out the work.
  • Rescue & Emergency Plan: Developed as per the regulations and rehearsed and practised by confined space personnel prior to entry.
