Assessment requirements

Modification History

Release 1. Supersedes and is equivalent to MSAENV672B Develop workplace policy and procedures for environmental sustainability

Performance Evidence

Evidence required to demonstrate competence in this unit must be relevant to and satisfy the requirements of the elements and performance criteria and must include the ability to:

  • scope and develop an integrated sustainability policy and procedure within an enterprise
  • raise awareness among stakeholders and those involved in implementing the policy of expected outcomes
  • develop a workable implementation strategy
  • ensure policy implementation is monitored, reviewed and modified where

Knowledge Evidence

Evidence must be provided that demonstrates knowledge of:

  • relevant policy development and implementation processes and practices
  • principles, practices and available tools and techniques of sustainability management relevant to the particular industry context.

Assessment Conditions

  • The unit should be assessed holistically and the judgement of competence based on a holistic assessment of the evidence.
  • The collection of performance evidence is best done from a report and/or folio of evidence drawn from:
  • a single project which provides sufficient evidence of the requirements of all the elements and performance criteria
  • multiple smaller projects which together provide sufficient evidence of the requirements of all the elements and performance criteria.
  • A third-party report, or similar, may be needed to testify to the work done by the individual, particularly when the project has been done as part of a project team.
  • Assessment should 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 reflecting 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.
  • Knowledge evidence may be collected concurrently with performance evidence or through an independent process, such as workbooks, written assessments or interviews (provided a record is kept).
  • 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.
  • Conditions for assessment must include access to all tools, equipment, materials and documentation required, including relevant workplace procedures, product and manufacturing specifications associated with this unit.
  • The regulatory framework will be reflected in workplace policies and procedures and is not required to be independently assessed.
  • Foundation skills are integral to competent performance of the unit and should not be assessed separately.
  • As a minimum, assessors must satisfy the Standards for Registered Training Organisations 2015 assessor requirements.
