Elements and Performance Criteria

Elements 

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance Criteria 

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element. Where bold and italicised text is used, further information is detailed in the range of conditions section.

1. Prepare to carry out a vehicle safety inspection

1.1 Job requirements are determined from workplace instructions

1.2 Vehicle safety inspection procedures and information are sourced and interpreted

1.3 Vehicle safety inspection options are analysed and those most appropriate to the circumstances are selected

1.4 Hazards associated with the work are identified and risks are managed

1.5 Tools and equipment are selected and checked for serviceability

2. Complete vehicle safety inspection

2.1 Vehicle safety inspection is carried out according to manufacturer specifications, workplace procedures and safety requirements , and without causing damage to any components or system

2.2 Vehicle components are compared to manufacturer specifications, and vehicle system tolerances outside vehicle manufacturer specifications are highlighted

2.3 Vehicle safety inspection report is completed according to workplace procedures

3. Complete work processes

3.1 Final inspection is made to ensure work is to workplace expectations and vehicle is presented ready for use

3.2 Work area is cleaned, waste and non-recyclable materials are disposed of, and recyclable material is collected

3.3 Tools and equipment are checked and stored according to workplace procedures

3.4 Workplace documentation is processed according to workplace procedures

Foundation Skills

This section describes those language, literacy, numeracy and employment skills that are essential to performance and are not explicit in the performance criteria.

Release 1 

New unit of competency.

Performance Evidence

Before competency can be determined, individuals must demonstrate they can perform the following according to the standards defined in this unit’s elements, performance criteria, range of conditions and foundation skills:

  • carry out the safety inspections of three different vehicles
  • produce separate vehicle safety reports relating to the above inspections.

Knowledge Evidence

Individuals must be able to demonstrate knowledge of:

  • work health and safety (WHS) and occupational, health and safety (OHS) requirements relating to carrying out vehicle safety inspections, including procedures for lifting and supporting vehicles
  • methods for sourcing vehicle specifications
  • vehicle and component safety inspection procedures
  • types of vehicle safety inspection reports.

Assessment Conditions

Assessors must satisfy NVR/AQTF assessor requirements.

Competency is to be assessed in the workplace or a simulated environment that accurately reflects performance in a real workplace setting.

Assessment must include direct observation of tasks.

Where assessment of competency includes third-party evidence, individuals must provide evidence that links them to the vehicles that they have inspected, e.g. repair orders.

Assessors must verify performance evidence through questioning on skills and knowledge to ensure correct interpretation and application.

The following resources must be made available:

  • automotive workplace or simulated workplace
  • vehicle manufacturer specifications
  • three different vehicles requiring safety inspections
  • tools and equipment for carrying out vehicle safety inspections.
