Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1. New unit. Supersedes and is equivalent to PMC552061 Deliver concrete to site

Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to deliver concrete to site using an agitator or similar.

This unit applies to operators who are required to take responsibility for own outputs and follow established procedures to safely drive and position the agitator truck; load agitator; mix and discharge concrete on site and communicate with customers. Operators are also required to work autonomously and apply their own judgement to interpret information; monitor processes; identify and address routine and non-routine problems and control hazards.

This unit applies to an individual working independently and with frequent contact with the base plant personnel.

The operator is required to hold a current driver’s licence appropriate to the agitator truck as required by local regulations. Relevant legislation, industry standards and codes of practice within Australia must also be applied.
