This version first released with CPC Construction, Plumbing and Services Training Package Release 5.0.

Supersedes and is equivalent to CPCCRI3001A Operate personnel and materials hoists. Updated to meet the Standards for Training Packages 2012.

Application

This unit of competency specifies the skills and knowledge required to safely and efficiently operate personnel and materials hoists for moving people and equipment to various heights in a multi-storey structure. It includes conducting pre-operational checks, operation, shutdown and post-operational checks of hoist equipment.

It applies to hoist operators who would be expected to take responsibility for organising and completing these tasks with a high degree of self direction.

Completion of the general construction induction training program, specified in the Safe Work Australia model Code of Practice: Construction Work, is required by anyone carrying out construction work. Achievement of CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry meets this requirement.

Licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to this unit of competency in some states and territories. For further information, check with the relevant regulatory authority.
