  • coordinates activities with others
  • working safely around other machines and personnel
  • demonstrates completion of conducting rigid haul truck operations that safely, effectively and efficiently meets all of the required outcomes on more than one (1) occasion including:
  • driving and manoeuvring rigid haul vehicle smoothly, adjusting operation techniques for the work environment and changing work conditions
  • operating rigid haul vehicle within limitations
  • correctly positioning the rigid haul vehicle for loading of materials under at least one (1) of the following types of loading equipment:
  • shovels
  • wheel loaders
  • excavators
  • bins
  • conveyor belts
  • draglines
  • hauling materials to designated location/s i.e. Tip Head, Crusher pocket, Waste Dump etc
  • correctly positioning the vehicle for dumping of materials
  • unloading materials from the rear of the vehicle in designated location and limiting spillage
  • undertaking approved vehicle shutdown and refuelling procedures
  • identifying issues with vehicle equipment and makes minor adjustments

  • equipment operating, maintenance and cleaning requirements and procedures
  • vehicle refueling procedures
  • complying with operational system
  • start-up and shutdown procedures
  • hauling procedures
  • loading procedures
  • changing work conditions
  • systems and alarms

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 must be assessed in the context of this sector’s work environment; 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
