  • locates and applies relevant documentation, policies and procedures
  • implements the requirements, procedures and techniques for safe, effective and efficient small mine site rehabilitation including:
  • selecting and using the required tools and equipment
  • correctly following rehabilitation procedures
  • demonstrates consistent and timely small mine site rehabilitation that safely, effectively and efficiently meets the required outcomes on a minimum of three (3) separate occasions including:
  • correctly interpreting a rehabilitation plan and Environmental Work Procedures
  • identifying, recording and reporting hazards and risks
  • completing rehabilitation operations
  • correctly operating and using equipment and materials

Knowledge Evidence

The candidate must demonstrate knowledge in small mine site rehabilitation through:

  • identifying non-native plants
  • relevant internal and external bodies
  • accessing, reading and interpreting written material appropriate for local conditions
  • graphic information
  • identifying faults
  • procedures for the disposal of environmentally sensitive fluids and materials
  • planning for rehabilitation
  • ground-water procedures and handling

Assessment Conditions

  • An assessor of this unit must satisfy the requirements of the NVR/AQTF or their successors; and Industry regulations for certification and licensing; and,
  • this unit must be assessed in the context of this sector’s work environment; and,
  • this unit must be assessed using Resources and Infrastructure Industry sector specific policies, procedures, processes and operational manuals; and,
  • assessor requirements differ between sectors as follows:
  • when assessing this unit in the context of the Metalliferous Mining sector:
  • an assessor must demonstrate the skills and knowledge of this unit through five (5) years of current and continuous work with the Industry sector and must hold the TAE Assessor Skill Set or equivalent; or,
  • when assessing this unit in the context of the Extractive sector
  • an assessor must demonstrate the skills and knowledge of this unit through five (5) years’ work experience in the Industry sector; and,
  • where the assessor does not have current experience a co-assessment or partnership arrangement needs to exist between the qualified assessor and an Industry technical expert/ subject matter expert. The Industry technical expert/subject matter expert must hold the unit being assessed and be currently working in the sector with a minimum of two (2) years’ of current work experience.
