Application

This unit describes the skills required to assess specific explosive as being safe and suitable for transport. The assessment is a process that is normally undertaken with explosives which are damaged, misfired or of an unknown origin and are required to be transported rather than destroyed or otherwise disposed of. It involves the necessity to identify the transportation requirements, assess the explosive to determine its suitability for transportation and to document the assessment process and outcomes.

This unit applies to those required to assess explosives as being safe and suitable for transport.

The skills and knowledge described in this unit must be applied within the legislative, regulatory and policy environment in which they are carried out. Organisational policies and procedures must be consulted and adhered to.

Those undertaking this unit would make high level, fully independent judgements, applying a detailed knowledge of explosives, analysing complex data and producing specific documents detailing the outcomes of highly specialised technical functions. They would perform sophisticated tasks in highly specialised operational contexts.

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

Elements and Performance Criteria

ELEMENTS

PERFORMANCE CRITERIA

Elements describe the essential outcomes

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

1.1 Identify and confirm explosives to be transported.

1.2 Identify and apply safety and security requirements.

2. Assess the explosive  

2.1 Inspect the explosives.

2.2 Conduct research to fill information gaps.

2.3 Determine the condition of the explosives.

2.4 Conduct a transportation risk assessment.

2.5 Conduct checks and inspections to ensure actions to eliminate or mitigate the hazards are completed.

2.6 Select and confirm transportation requirements.

3. Produce requirement documents 

3.1 Produce a report on the transportation of specific explosives.

3.2 Distribute report and communicate decisions.

These Assessment Requirements were released in DEF Defence Training Package release 1.0 and meet the Standards for Training Packages.

  • Assessment Requirements created drawing upon specified assessment information from superseded unit

Performance Evidence

Evidence required to demonstrate competence must satisfy all of the requirements of the elements and performance criteria. If not otherwise specified the candidate must demonstrate evidence of performance of the following on at least one occasion.

  • applying explosive design principles
  • interpreting and applying technical instructions
  • applying operational safety
  • analysing data
  • identifying and confirming explosive characteristics

Knowledge Evidence

Evidence required to demonstrate competence must satisfy all of the requirements of the elements and performance criteria. If not otherwise specified the depth of knowledge demonstrated must be appropriate to the job context of the candidate.

In-depth knowledge of:

  • theory of explosive design
  • characteristics and limitations of explosive
  • explosive chemistry/physics

Assessment Conditions

Competency should be assessed in an actual workplace or in a simulated environment, with access to equipment and infrastructure appropriate to the outcome. Competency should be demonstrated over time to ensure the candidate is assessed across a variety of situations.

Assessors must satisfy the NVR/AQTF mandatory competency requirements for assessors.
