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.

1. Inspect plant and equipment and rectify routine faults

1.1. Complete regular visual or physical walk around inspections to assess plant and equipment performance.

1.2. Inspect equipment to identify faults and preventative maintenance requirements.

1.3. Record and report faulty plant and equipment and maintenance requirements.

1.4. Rectify faults within limits of responsibility and document actions and outcomes.

2. Complete preventative maintenance for plant and equipment

2.1. Select appropriate repair, maintenance and personal protective equipment and check for operational effectiveness.

2.2. Follow organisational safety procedures throughout all maintenance and repair processes

2.3. Locate plant and equipment and plan sequence of maintenance activities.

2.4. Initiate appropriate isolations and shut down equipment as required.

2.5. Interpret process and navigation controls.

2.6. Complete routine preventative maintenance in line with maintenance schedules and in response to immediate need.

2.7. Record maintenance activities in operating log.

Foundation Skills

This section describes those core and employment skills that are essential to performance and are not explicit in the performance criteria.

  • consequences of inadequate preventative maintenance
  • methods used to test equipment and diagnose faults
  • use of instrumentation data as an indication of plant and equipment requiring preventative maintenance
  • basic non-specialist repair and maintenance techniques for pulp and paper manufacturing equipment to complete:
  • oil top ups
  • blade changes
  • filter changes or cleaning
  • greasing
  • lubricating
  • pressure checks
  • removing and replacing machinery components
  • maintaining or replacing consumables
  • safe handling and disposal of lubricants
  • organisational procedures:
  • standard operating procedures specific to inspecting, repairing and maintaining equipment
  • workplace health and safety with particular emphasis on equipment lock out, use of personal protective equipment and handling hazardous substances
  • communication reporting lines
  • recording and reporting equipment faults, repair and maintenance actions.

Assessment Conditions

The following resources must be made available:

  • fully automated, semi-automated, manually operated pulp and paper manufacturing equipment to repair and maintain
  • repair and maintenance tools and equipment
  • personal protective equipment suitable for repairing and maintaining equipment
  • consumable oil, lubricants, blades and filters
  • maintenance schedules
  • template documents for recording equipment faults, repair and maintenance actions
  • organisational workplace health and safety and standard operating procedures for inspecting, repairing and maintaining equipment.
