Performance Evidence

Evidence is required to be collected that demonstrates a candidate’s competency in this unit. Evidence must be relevant to the roles within this sector’s work operations and satisfy all of the requirements of the performance criteria of this unit and include evidence that the candidate:

  • locates and applies relevant documentation, policies and procedures
  • implements the requirements, procedures and techniques for the safe, effective and efficient completion of the operation of a gantry or overhead crane including:
  • planning and preparing for operating the gantry or overhead crane
  • performing crane inspection and fault finding
  • accessing, interpreting and applying technical information
  • selecting and using relevant tools and equipment
  • works effectively with others to undertake and complete the operation of a gantry or overhead crane that meets all of the required outcomes including:
  • using a range of communication techniques and equipment to coordinate activities with others
  • maintaining all written and verbal reporting requirements and procedures
  • demonstrates completion of operating a gantry or overhead crane that safely, effectively and efficiently meets all of the required outcomes on more than one (1) occasion including:
  • performing pre-start, start-up, park-up and shutdown procedures
  • operating crane controls to lift, transfer and lower loads
  • completing maintenance operations, including:
  • inspection of gantry or overhead crane
  • performing operational servicing and lubrication
  • calculating volume and weights
  • disposing of environmentally sensitive fluids and materials

Knowledge Evidence

The candidate must demonstrate knowledge of the following when operating a gantry or overhead crane:

  • accessing and applying the National Standard for High Risk Work
  • identifying crane equipment characteristics, technical capabilities and limitations
  • accessing, interpreting and applying technical crane information
  • applying fault finding techniques
  • identifying, interpreting and using hand and whistle signals

Assessment Conditions

  • An assessor of this unit must satisfy the requirements of the NVR/AQTF or their successors; and Industry regulations for certification and licensing; and,
  • this unit is best assessed in the context of this sector’s work environment;
  • where personal safety or environmental damage are limiting factors, assessment may occur in a simulated environment provided it is realistic and sufficiently rigorous to cover all aspects of this sector’s workplace performance, including environment, task skills, task management skills, contingency management skills and job role environment skills; and,
  • this unit must be assessed in compliance with relevant legislation/regulation and using policies, procedures, processes and operational manuals directly related to the industry sector for which it is being assessed; and,
  • assessment may be conducted in conjunction with the assessment of other Units of Competency; and,
  • assessment must confirm consistent performance can be applied in a range of relevant workplace circumstances; and,
  • assessors must demonstrate the performance evidence, and knowledge evidence as outlined in this Unit of Competency, and through the minimum years of current* work experience specified below in an Industry sector relevant to the outcomes of the unit; or,
  • where the assessor does not meet experience requirements a co-assessment or partnership arrangement must exist between the qualified assessor and an Industry subject matter expert. The Industry subject matter expert should hold the unit being assessed (or an equivalent unit) and/or demonstrate equivalence of skills and knowledge at the unit level. An Industry technical expert must also demonstrate skills and knowledge from the minimum years of current work experience specified below in the Industry sector, including time spent in roles related to the unit being assessed; and,
  • assessor and Industry subject matter expert requirements differ depending on the Australian Qualifications Framework Level (AQF) of the qualification being assessed and/or Industry Sector as follows:
  • Industry sector

    AQF** Level

    Required assessor or Industry subject matter expert experience
