3.2 Perform work safely at heights, within uncompleted structures and/or in confined and enclosed spaces

3.3 Connect lifting gear to load

3.4 Connect load to movement device using appropriate and certified equipment in accordance with relevant standards

3.5 Ensure stability of the load by application of load movement procedure, temporary bracing and/or load support appropriate to the task

3.6 Follow appropriate designer’s specifications during the placement and securing of the load

3.7 Direct load to landing position using communication compliant with Australian standards and site procedures

4. Clean up

4.1 Dismantle and inspect load shifting equipment

4.2 Clear work area of materials by disposing, reusing or recycling

4.3 Check, clean, maintain and store tools and equipment

Performance Evidence

Evidence is required to be collected that demonstrates a candidate’s competency in this unit. Evidence must be relevant to the roles within this sector’s work operations and satisfy all of the requirements of the performance criteria of this unit and include evidence that the candidate:

  • locates and applies relevant documentation, policies and procedures
  • implements the requirements, procedures and techniques for the safe, effective and efficient completion of the performance of dogging through:
  • reading work load limit tags
  • using ropes as tag lines
  • using ropes to connect to loads using each of the following knot types:
  • Clover Hitch
  • Rolling Hitch
  • Single Sheet bend
  • Bowline
  • calculating mass, dimensions and centre of gravity of the load and assessed for lifting requirements
  • lifting/slinging points on the load are identified and correctly used
  • clearing work area of materials by disposing, reusing or recycling on completion of the work
  • works effectively with others to undertake and perform dogging that meets all of the required outcomes through:
  • communicating hazards and determining elimination or control of hazards
  • coordinating lifting sequence with others
  • reporting work completion to relevant personnel
  • demonstrates completion of dogging that safely, effectively and efficiently meets all of the required outcomes on more than one (1) occasion including:
  • write a preliminary dogging plan which must include the following points in detail:
  • confirmed details of dogging requirements
  • confirmed dimensions
  • site access and egress
  • suitability and availability of materials
  • tools and equipment
  • identification of potential hazards
  • probable control measures
  • identification of site coordination requirements
  • selecting and conducting pre and post operational inspection on equipment including:
  • lifting equipment
  • personal protective equipment
  • communication equipment
  • move load in conjunction with crane/hoist including demonstrating the following for loads of varying weight, size and shape:
  • slinging the load
  • loading
  • directing the crane/hoist operator in the movement of a load when the load is out of the view of the crane/hoist operator
  • directing the crane/hoist operator in the movement of a load when the load is in view of the crane/hoist operator
  • directing the crane/hoist operator in the landing of a load when the load is out of the view of the crane/hoist operator
  • directing the crane/hoist operator in the landing of a load when the load is in view of the crane/hoist operator

Knowledge Evidence

The candidate must demonstrate knowledge of performing dogging through:

  • National Standard for High Risk Work for dogging
  • code of practice
  • designs and functions of lifting equipment
  • signaling methods and communications
  • appropriate national certification standards
  • site and equipment safety requirements
  • equipment characteristics, technical capabilities and limitations
  • operational and maintenance procedures
  • potential hazards

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 is best assessed in the context of this sector’s work environment;
  • where personal safety or environmental damage are limiting factors, assessment may occur in a simulated environment provided it is realistic and sufficiently rigorous to cover all aspects of this sector’s workplace performance, including environment, task skills, task management skills, contingency management skills and job role environment skills; 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

    Other sectors

    Where this Unit is being assessed outside of the Resources and Infrastructure Sectors assessor and/or Industry subject matter expert experience should be in-line with industry standards for the sector in which it is being assessed and where no Industry standard is specified should comply with any relevant regulation.

    *Assessors can demonstrate current work experience through employment within Industry in a role relevant to the outcomes of the Unit; or, for external assessors this can be demonstrated through exposure to Industry by conducting frequent site assessments across various locations.

    **Where a unit is being delivered outside of a Qualification the first numeric character in the Unit code should be considered to indicate the AQF level
