  • safety data sheets relevant to chemicals used to immunise veneer
  • characteristics of veneer (quarter sawn, back sawn, radial/rotary sawn)
  • storage locations and stock rotation positions
  • procedures for packing and labelling dried veneer panels
  • procedures for checking condition of treating mechanisms
  • procedures for recording and reporting veneer immunisation process and faults using manual or electronic recording systems
  • procedures for equipment lock-out
  • statutory requirements for the safe storage and handling of chemicals.

Assessment Conditions

The following resources must be made available:

  • work order
  • chemicals or chemical solutions used to immunise veneer which must include one or more of the following:
