Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1. Supersedes and is equivalent to MEM14005A Plan a complete activity

Application

This unit of competency covers the skills and knowledge required to plan familiar work activities, whilst following established procedures and work health and safety (WHS) policies and procedures of the organisation.

Planning is undertaken by the individual performing the work. Individual plan components may require modification and prioritising to meet job requirements or to respond to unforeseen circumstances.

Where computations are required to be performed unit MEM12024 Perform computations should also be selected.

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

Assessment requirements

Modification History

Release 1. Supersedes and is equivalent to MEM14005A Plan a complete activity

Performance Evidence

Evidence required to demonstrate competence in this unit must be relevant to and satisfy the requirements of the elements and performance criteria on at least two (2) occasions and include:

  • following work instructions, standard operating procedures (SOPs) and safe work practices
  • planning a work activity using appropriate planning tools and techniques whilst following established procedures, including work health and safety (WHS) requirements
  • checking the plan to ensure accuracy and conformance and modifying the plan components, as necessary, to overcome any unforeseen difficulties or developments
  • identifying hazards and implementing appropriate risk control measures and procedures
  • selecting, using and maintaining relevant personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • evaluating the effectiveness of risk controls measures
  • providing proforma WHS reports in accordance with SOPs, as required.

Knowledge Evidence

Evidence required to demonstrate the required knowledge for this unit must be relevant to and satisfy the requirements of the elements and performance criteria and include knowledge of:

  • safe work practices and procedures and use of PPE
  • relevant specifications
  • sources of advice relating to the objectives, requirements and specifications
  • timeframe for activity completion
  • quality requirements of the product or service
  • techniques and reasons for prioritising of each step in a plan
  • modifications that can be made to the plan to respond to unforeseen developments
  • risk control measures
  • reporting requirements for accidents, incidents and other non-conformances with WHS procedures.

Assessment Conditions

  • Assessors must:
  • have vocational competency in planning work activities in a manufacturing and engineering environment at least to the level being assessed with relevant industry knowledge and experience
  • satisfy the assessor requirements in the Standards for Registered Training Organisations 2015 or its replacementand comply with the National Vocational Education and Training Regulator Act 2011, its replacementor equivalent legislation covering VET regulation in a non-referring state/territory as the case requires
  • Where possible assessment must occur in operational workplace situations. Where this is not possible or where personal safety or environmental damage are limiting factors, assessment must occur in a sufficiently rigorous simulated environment that reflects realistic operational workplace conditions. This must cover all aspects of workplace performance, including environment, task skills, task management skills, contingency management skills and job role environment skills
  • Conditions for assessment must include access to all tools, equipment, materials and documentation required, including relevant workplace procedures, product and manufacturing specifications
  • Assessment processes and techniques must be appropriate to the language, literacy and numeracy requirements of the work being performed and the needs of the candidate.
