Evidence Guide

EVIDENCE GUIDE 

The evidence guide provides advice on assessment and must be read in conjunction with the performance criteria, required skills and knowledge, range statement and the Assessment Guidelines for the Training Package.

Overview of assessment 

Successful assessment of this unit meets the competency requirement of the National Standard for licensing Persons Performing High Risk Work.

State/Territory OHS regulators have mandated the use of Assessment Instruments and Instructions for Assessment for this unit which have been endorsed by the national body responsible for OHS matters.

Critical aspects for assessment and evidence required to demonstrate competency in this unit 

A person who demonstrates competency in this unit must be able to provide evidence of the ability to:

  • comply with OHS licensing legislation.
  • effectively communicate and work safely with others in the work area.
  • effectively conduct risk assessment and management procedures.
  • effectively complete the following tasks:
  • adding and removing a tower crane section, or
  • adding and removing a crane lattice boom section, or
  • erecting a non guyed tower (e.g. light tower, and
  • perform a multiple crane lift, or
  • a multiple winch lift, or
  • a combination of a crane and winch lift, and
  • lifting and installing a series of tilt-up panels, or
  • lifting and installing a series of scenery panels (i.e. entertainment industry), and
  • demolish/remove a series of tilt-up panel structures, or
  • demolish/remove a series of scenery panel structures, and
  • demolishing a concrete encased structural steel column and beam.
  • NB : All specifications for these performance tasks are detailed in the endorsed assessment instrument.
  • effectively conduct pre and post operational checks of intermediate rigging equipment.

Context of and specific resources for assessment 

Assessment of the safe and effective application of knowledge and skill to workplace tasks (performance) must be undertaken using the endorsed Assessment Instrument.

Assessment of performance must be undertaken either in the workplace or in a realistically simulated workplace setting.

Assessors must ensure that the assessment in the workplace is organised to ensure that all the required equipment and materials and a suitable working area is made available to suit the assessment and the workplace.

Assessment must occur under standard and authorised work practices, safety requirements and environmental constraints.

Assessment is to comply with relevant appropriate standard requirements.

Applicants must have access to:

  • personal protective equipment (PPE) for the purpose of the Performance Assessment
  • appropriate safety equipment is safe condition
  • appropriate rigging equipment, associated equipment associated plant in safe condition as described in the endorsed assessment instrument
  • communication equipment (e.g. radios) where applicable
  • appropriate materials as required for safe erection of structures.

Method of assessment 

Assessment must be conducted using the endorsed Assessment Instruments. These Instruments provide advice on their application.

The use of 'simulators'  in the assessment of this unit of competency is not acceptable .

Assessment may be in conjunction with the assessment of other units of competency.

Assessment methods must confirm consistency and accuracy of performance together with application of underpinning knowledge.

Assessment must confirm a reasonable inference that competency is not only able to be satisfied under the particular circumstance, but is able to be transferred to other circumstances.

Guidance information for assessment 

Further information about endorsed Assessment Instruments may be obtained from state/territory OHS regulators.
