Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1

This version first released with CPP Property Services Training Package Release 10.0.

Supersedes but is not equivalent to:

  • CPPWMT3013A Receive waste.
  • CPPWMT3015A Move waste using loadshifting equipment.
  • CPPWMT3018A Dispatch processed waste.

Application

This unit specifies the skills and knowledge required to receive waste, operate load-shifting equipment to load, move and unload waste, and dispatch waste for transport to another site. It includes monitoring waste receipt, organising equipment, loading and unloading methods suitable for waste types and site conditions and performing operational checks, start-up, park and shut-down procedures. It also includes scheduling waste dispatch activities and monitoring waste movement and containment to ensure safety and regulatory compliance.

A person who achieves this unit of competency is expected to take responsibility for completing these tasks with a high degree of self-direction.

This unit forms part of the licensing requirements for operating vehicles, plant and equipment used in waste management. For further information, check with the relevant regulatory authority.

4.2

Fit required load-shifting attachments according to manufacturer instructions and workplace requirements.

4.3

Safely load waste using required methods and regulate liquid flow where waste is vacuumed to maintain constant hose pressure.

4.4

Move load to designated unloading location while maintaining constant visual monitoring to ensure waste containment and identify potential hazards.

4.5

Safely unload waste in designated unloading area using required methods and regulate liquid flow where waste is vacuumed to maintain constant hose pressure.

4.6

Store waste at destination according to workplace requirements.

4.7

Park, shut-down and secure load-shifting equipment and attachments in a safe location to avoid damage to equipment and obstruction of surrounding site activity.

5

Dispatch waste.

5.1

Use signalling and oral instructions to assist safe and efficient waste loading onto dispatch vehicle.

5.2

Monitor loading site to ensure compliance with loading instructions, waste containment and adequate space for loading.

5.3

Measure and record regulated or prescribed waste and display required waste identification signage according to regulatory requirements.

5.4

Check to ensure waste is contained and secure and that load weight is within safe operational capacity of dispatch vehicle according to regulatory requirements.

6

Finalise work tasks and complete documentation.

6.1

Clean load-shifting equipment, attachments and work area to remove debris and contamination.

6.2

Conduct service checks of load-shifting equipment following manufacturer and workplace requirements and resolve or report problems.

6.3

Complete workplace documentation detailing waste movement and dispatch according to workplace and regulatory requirements.
