  • performing daily and shift vehicle inspections and fault finding checks
  • identifying and establishing no-go zones in the vicinity of vehicle loading cranes
  • selecting and using relevant tools and equipment
  • works effectively with others to undertake and complete the operation of a vehicle loading crane that meets all of the required outcomes including:
  • using a range of communication techniques and equipment to convey information to others
  • complying with written and verbal reporting requirements and procedures
  • demonstrates completion of operating a vehicle loading crane that safely, effectively and efficiently meets all of the required outcomes on more than one (1) occasion including:
  • performing pre-start, start-up, park-up, shutdown and vehicle positioning procedures
  • lifting and positioning loads or personnel using crane controls and function
  • directing crane operations using load moving signals
  • monitoring load and crane hook movements and locations
  • disposing of environmentally sensitive fluids and materials

Knowledge Evidence

The candidate must demonstrate knowledge of the following when operating a vehicle loading crane:

  • no-go areas in the vicinity of vehicle loading cranes
  • never work under crane booms
  • crane hook location and movement
  • Relevant standards related to loading cranes and lifting
  • site and equipment safety requirements

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
