Application

This unit of competency describes the skills and knowledge required to control erosion and sediment using earthworks construction and other land forming activities.

Construction is often carried out using a single earthmoving machine in varied conditions and terrains that requires the plant operator to develop skills that are unique to this sector.

This unit applies to individuals who work under general supervision and exercise limited autonomy with some accountability for their own work, they undertake defined routine activities.

No occupational licensing, legislative or certification requirements are known to apply to this unit at the time of publication.

Pre-requisite Unit

Nil.

Unit Sector

Soil and Water Conservation (SAW)

The candidate must provide evidence that they can:

  • conduct erosion and sediment control activities as instructed by a supervisor
  • identify hazards and follow safe operating procedures
  • identify erosion and sediment control structures, measures and practices
  • carry out routine work with control measures and structures
  • identify areas at risk of erosion
  • operate or use machinery tools and equipment required for the tasks involved safely and efficiently

Knowledge Evidence

The candidate must demonstrate knowledge of:

  • the need for erosion and sediment control, including:
  • the cost of erosion and sedimentation to the community
  • the effect of loss of habitat
  • how water quality is affected
  • how soil erosion can cause loss of production, assets and amenities
  • re-occurring maintenance, repair and monitoring requirements for controls
  • agents and processes of erosion and sedimentation and ways to control them
  • types of erosion and sediment control structures and techniques for constructing them
  • role of vegetation in erosion control
  • basic catchment issues
  • characteristics of soils with an emphasis on erodible soils
