Performance Evidence

The candidate must demonstrate the ability to complete the tasks outlined in the elements and performance criteria of this unit.

The candidate must demonstrate completion of belly dump operations that safely, effectively and efficiently follows workplace procedures to carry out work activity on at least two occasions, and include:

  • conducting prestart and start-up checks prior to commencing operations
  • driving and manoeuvring belly dump vehicle, and adjusting techniques to suit site conditions
  • operating belly dump vehicle within equipment operating limitations
  • positioning the belly dump vehicle for loading of materials under at least one of the following loading equipment:
  • shovels
  • wheel loaders
  • excavators
  • bins
  • conveyor belts
  • draglines
  • hauling materials to designated location/s i.e. Tip Head, Crusher pocket, Waste Dump
  • positioning the vehicle for discharging materials
  • controlling the degree of gate opening and the speed of the vehicle during discharge
  • controlling the discharge rate to spread load evenly
  • identifying issues with vehicle equipment, and making minor adjustments or reporting if within scope of own responsibility

In the course of the above work the candidate must also:

  • locate and apply relevant documentation, policies and procedures
  • select and wear personal protective equipment required for work activities
  • apply safe work practices and identify and report potential hazards and environmental issues, and assess risks
  • monitor and manage equipment performance using indicators and alarms
  • identify common equipment faults
  • inspect and prepare work area
  • enter and exit the vehicle using three point contact technique
  • use a range of communications techniques and equipment essential to the safe completion of work instruction to convey information to others
  • meet written and verbal reporting requirements and procedures associated with belly dump truck operations

Knowledge Evidence

The candidate must demonstrate knowledge of the following when conducting belly dump truck operations:

Key policies, procedures, legislation and established requirements for rigid haul truck operation, including those relating to:

  • site traffic codes
  • fault identification and operational maintenance
  • hauling and loading
  • operational systems

Key site information, including:

  • basic geological and survey data
  • plans and maps

Key factors affecting work activities described in performance evidence above, including:

  • technical capabilities and limitations
  • equipment safety requirements

Assessment Conditions

Mandatory conditions for assessment of this unit are stipulated below. The assessment must:

  • include access to:
  • a dump belly truck
  • loading equipment
  • materials to load, haul and dump
  • personal protective equipment
  • be conducted in a safe environment; and,
  • be assessed in context of this sector's work environment; and,
  • 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,
  • confirm consistent performance can be applied in a range of relevant workplace circumstances

Where personal safety or environmental damage are limiting factors, assessment may occur in a simulated work 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.

Assessor requirements 

Assessors must be able to clearly demonstrate current and relevant industry knowledge and experience to satisfy the mandatory competency standards as set out in the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015/AQTF mandatory requirements for assessors current at the time of assessment and any relevant licensing and certification requirements. This includes:

  • vocational competencies at least to the level being delivered and assessed
  • current industry skills directly relevant to the training and assessment being provided
  • current knowledge and skills in vocational training and learning that informs their training and assessment
  • formal relevant qualifications in training and assessment
  • having knowledge of and/or experience using the latest techniques and processes
  • possessing a high level of RII training product knowledge
  • having an understanding and knowledge of legislations and regulations relevant to the industry and to employment and workplaces
  • demonstrating the performance evidence, and knowledge evidence as outlined in this Unit of Competency, and
  • the minimum years of current** work experience after competency has been obtained as specified below in an industry sector relevant to the outcomes of the unit.

It is also acceptable for the appropriately qualified assessor to work with an industry expert to conduct assessment together and for the industry expert to be involved in the assessment judgement. The industry expert must hold the relevant vocational competencies and have current industry skills directly relevant to the training and assessment being provided and must work alongside a trainer and/or assessor to conduct the assessment. This means the industry subject matter expert should hold the unit being assessed (or an equivalent unit), and must also demonstrate skills and knowledge from the minimum years of current work experience after competency has been obtained as specified below, including time spent in roles related to the unit being assessed:

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.

*Guidance on simulated environments has been stipulated in the RII implementation guide located on VETNet.

**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 a minimum number of site assessments as determined by the relevant industry sector, across various locations.

*** While a Unit of Competency does not have an AQF level, where a unit is being delivered outside of a qualification the first numeric character in the unit code should be considered as the AQF indicator level for assessment purposes.
