Victoria's Department of Justice and Community Safety says it welcomes the coroner's recent findings into the death of Loddon Prison inmate Hizir Ferman.
Ferman, 36, died in July 2016 when he was forcibly removed from his cell in the Middleton prison annexe.
Coroner Rosemary Carlin found tear gas exposure, agitation and restraint contributed to his death from cardiorespiratory arrest.
She recommended Corrections Victoria update its cell extraction training and online training on positional asphyxia, and review the configuration of cells in Middleton to allow officers to view or enter bedrooms in emergencies.
The department has three months to respond to these recommendations.
"The recommendations made by the coroner will be carefully considered," a department spokeperson said.
"The health and safety of all prisoners and staff is of paramount importance, and the department will continue to implement the policies needed to maintain a safe and secure environment."
It was also recommended healthcare provider Correct Care have a qualified medical practitioner review its fact sheets on restraint and positional asphyxia.
Correct Care also has three months to respond to the recommendation.
