  • identifying and applying relevant drawings and job specifications to all work activities
  • identifying, addressing and reporting potential hazards and risks
  • identifying, obtaining, confirming and implementing signage requirements
  • selecting and checking for faults all plant, tools and equipment to carry out tasks
  • identifying, addressing and reporting environmental issues and ground conditions
  • surveying work area for loading and unloading and stock-piling materials
  • works effectively with others to undertake and complete the laying of pipes to the required outcomes including:
  • preparing for and organising work activities to meet all task requirements
  • communicating clearly and concisely with others to receive and clarify work instructions
  • using a range of communication techniques and aids to advise others of work activity and exclusion zones
  • monitoring hazards and identifying and communicating changes to the work environment during the work process
  • demonstrates completion of laying pipes that safely, effectively and efficiently meets all of the required outcomes on more than one (1) occasion including:
  • set out of and conducting excavation in the correct location to specified depth and grades
  • compacting and preparing foundation base for testing

  • laying pipes for correct line and level
  • finishing inlets and outlets in accordance with pipe/culvert design specifications
  • advising plant operator of backfilling requirements
  • clearing work area and disposing of, recycling or storing materials
  • installation of pipe to a minimum of ten (10) pipe joints. The pipes are to have a minimum diameter of DNC two hundred and twenty-five (DN225) mm

Knowledge Evidence

The candidate must demonstrate knowledge in laying pipes through:

  • accessing, interpreting and applying the organisation and site requirements and procedures for laying pipes through:
  • identifying and managing risks
  • identifying, addressing and reporting environmental issues and ground conditions
  • setting up work activity
  • site isolation and traffic control responsibilities
  • work health and safety
  • managing waste
  • selecting and checking for faults, tools and equipment to carry out tasks
  • carrying out work to drawings and specifications

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 in compliance with relevant legislation/regulation and using policies, procedures, processes and operational manuals directly related to the industry sector for which it is being assessed; and,
  • assessment may be conducted in conjunction with the assessment of other Units of Competency; and,
  • assessment must confirm consistent performance can be applied in a range of relevant workplace circumstances; and,
  • assessors must demonstrate the performance evidence, and knowledge evidence as outlined in this Unit of Competency, and through the minimum years of current* work experience specified below in an Industry sector relevant to the outcomes of the unit; or,
  • where the assessor does not meet experience requirements a co-assessment or partnership arrangement must exist between the qualified assessor and an Industry subject matter expert. The Industry subject matter expert should hold the unit being assessed (or an equivalent unit) and/or demonstrate equivalence of skills and knowledge at the unit level. An Industry technical expert must also demonstrate skills and knowledge from the minimum years of current work experience specified below in the Industry sector, including time spent in roles related to the unit being assessed; and,
  • assessor and Industry subject matter expert requirements differ depending on the Australian Qualifications Framework Level (AQF) of the qualification being assessed and/or Industry Sector as follows:
  • Industry sector

    AQF** Level

    Required assessor or Industry subject matter expert experience
