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 applicable legislation, documentation, policies and procedures
  • implements the requirements, procedures and techniques for the safe, effective and efficient completion of spreader operations including:
  • applying diagnostics techniques
  • applying hand-eye coordination
  • disposing of environmentally sensitive fluids and materials
  • applying of chemical and fuel safety measures
  • works effectively with others to undertake and complete the spreader operations in a way that meets all of the required outcomes including:
  • communicating clearly and concisely with others to receive and clarify work instructions, and co-ordinate activities
  • demonstrates completion of conducting speaker operations that safely, effectively and efficiently meets all of the required outcomes on more than one (1) occasion including:
  • carrying out pre-start, start-up, park-up and shutdown procedures
  • completing the work plan
  • operating and relocating the spreader
  • discharging materials from the spreader
  • maintaining written maintenance and equipment records

Knowledge Evidence

The candidate must demonstrate knowledge in conducting spreader operations through:

  • accessing, interpreting and applying the organisation and site requirements and procedures for;
  • risk assessment and hazard management for situations working at heights
  • group preparation for spreader relocation
  • identifying, accessing, interpreting and applying technical information regarding spreader operations including:
  • boarding & disembarking procedures
  • relocating
  • operational signals
  • positioning
  • discharging
  • selective placement of materials as part of low dumping, high dumping and capping
  • identifying spreader equipment characteristics, technical capabilities and limitations including:
  • maximum loads, outputs, limits & tolerance levels

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
