Elements and Performance Criteria Pre-Content

Elements describe the essential outcomes of a unit of competency.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element. Where bold italicised text is used, further information is detailed in the required skills and knowledge section and the range statement. Assessment of performance is to be consistent with the evidence guide.

Elements and Performance Criteria


Identify tilt-up construction and risk management processes.


Relationship is identified between each stage of the tilt-up construction process  and the following stage, and typical faults, problems, hazards and possible effects if design and safety requirements are not met.


Basic principles of risk management and duty holders responsible are identified.


Minimum requirements for a safe work method statement for each task as outlined in the national code of practice , and the duty holder responsible for its preparation and compliance are identified.


Minimum requirements are identified for a work plan and/or work health and safety (WHS) management plan for tilt-up construction, as outlined in the national code of practice.


Available skills training  opportunities relevant to own work, role and responsibilities are identified.


Identify information relating to safe tilt-up construction.


Regulatory information  relevant to own work, role and responsibilities is identified.


Roles and responsibilities of self and others relevant to own work and role in tilt-up construction are identified.


General work procedures, documentation, drawings and plans  for carrying out the tilt-up construction process relevant to own work, role and responsibilities are identified.


General safety requirements for equipment and tools  used in the tilt-up construction process relevant to own work, role and responsibilities are identified.


Identify procedures to maintain safety of self and others.


Communication with others is undertaken to establish that key safety requirements have been met for preceding stages of tilt-up construction.


General procedures for responding to, rectifying and reporting faults, problems and hazards relevant to own work, role and responsibilities are identified.


Methods and procedures used to control tilt-up construction hazards  are identified, including the content of the work plan and/or WHS management plan and safe work method statements  relevant to own work, role and responsibilities.


Sequence of tasks and activities relevant to own work is identified and adequacy of the associated safe work method statement is reviewed by conducting a job safety analysis .

Required skills 

  • communication and interpersonal skills to:
  • contribute to the discussion of workplace hazards and risks
  • ask effective questions
  • collaborate with colleagues
  • relay information to others
  • report on WHS issues
  • language and literacy skills to understand plans and procedures, including WHS requirements, such as:
  • safety signs and symbols
  • safe work method statements
  • safe working procedures

Required knowledge 

  • construction terminology
  • hazard identification and risk control related to tilt-up work
  • job safety analysis (JSA) and safe work method statements (SWMS)

  • WHS standards, legislative requirements and codes of practice related to tilt-up work

Evidence Guide

The evidence guide provides advice on assessment and must be read in conjunction with the performance criteria, required skills and knowledge, range statement and the Assessment Guidelines for the Training Package.

Overview of assessment 

Competency is to be assessed only after completion of the General Induction Training Program specified by the National Code of Practice for Induction for Construction Work.

Critical aspects for assessment and evidence required to demonstrate competency in this unit 

Evidence must confirm understanding and knowledge of the following:

  • relevant legal responsibilities, codes of practice and standards for tilt-up construction work
  • the range of common tilt-up construction hazards and procedures for the assessment of risks and application of the hierarchy of control
  • an understanding of job safety analysis and safe work method statements.

Context of and specific resources for assessment 

The relevant WHS authority may have specific requirements concerning the expertise necessary to be a subject expert for assessment of this unit. Assessment must be made according to any such requirements.

Procedures and documentation should cover those used in the workplace.

Resources must be available to support the program including:

  • relevant standards, regulations and code of practice for tilt-up construction
  • Australian standards AS3850 and AS3600
  • participant materials and other information
  • drawings and specifications
  • tilt-up slab related plans
  • safe load tables
  • safe work method statements
  • JSA materials.

A range of assessment tools and resources should be used to suit the learning preferences or special learning needs of individual participants.

Method of assessment 

Assessment methods may include more than one of the following:

  • practical assessment
  • oral questioning
  • written test
  • work-based activities
  • problem solving scenarios
  • simulated project based activity.

Range Statement

The range statement relates to the unit of competency as a whole. It allows for different work environments and situations that may affect performance. Bold italicised wording, if used in the performance criteria, is detailed below. Essential operating conditions that may be present with training and assessment (depending on the work situation, needs of the candidate, accessibility of the item, and local industry and regional contexts) may also be included.

Stages of the tilt-up construction process  cover:

  • design and manufacture
  • handling, storage and transportation
  • cranage and erection
  • temporary bracing, stabilisation and incorporation of concrete panels
  • demolition

National code of practice  refers to:

  • National Code of Practice for Precast, Tilt-Up and Concrete Elements in Building Construction.

Skills training  opportunities could include completing further training, including:

  • CPCCBC4022A Supervise tilt-up work
  • CPCCCO3028A Carry out tilt panel construction
  • CPCCRI3015A Perform advanced tilt-up slab erection.

Regulatory information  includes general WHS requirements, such as:

  • Australian standards AS3850 and AS3600
