Elements and Performance Criteria

Element

Performance criteria

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Plan and prepare work

1.1 Interpret plans and specifications

1.2 Check the quantity and quality of materials

1.3 Select tools and equipment and check for serviceability

1.4 Identify hazards, assess risks and implement controls

1.5 Select and use personal protective equipment (PPE)

1.6 Identify and ameliorate environmental impacts of proposed concrete works

2. Set out and prepare the site

2.1 Determine and locate services

2.2 Mark out the position of the structure or feature according to plans

2.3 Establish profiles to conform to the nominated tolerances

2.4 Prepare subsoil by removing all debris, vegetable matter and topsoil to provide a solid foundation for concrete

2.5 Install drainage systems according to plans and specifications

2.6 Install form work to the site in a manner that will ensure it remains rigid during concrete pouring operations

2.7 Place and compact sub-base material to the required finished levels

2.8 Complete preparation of the site according to the type of structure or feature to be constructed

2.9 Place reinforcement as designated in plans and specifications

3. Mix and pour concrete

3.1 Determine proportions for concrete mix according to the strength requirements of the project

3.2 Determine the volume of dry materials necessary to produce final concrete mix

3.3 Mix together all dry ingredients and required additives to ensure a thorough blending of all materials is achieved

3.4 Introduce sufficient water to produce a concrete mix to the required consistency

3.5 Pour concrete to designated levels in a manner to avoid segregation of materials

3.6 Consolidate concrete using an approved vibration method

4. Finish concrete

4.1 Screed concrete to the desired finished level

4.2 Trowel surface to desired finish

4.3 Finish concrete off according to plans and specifications

5. Check quality of work and clean-up site
