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
  • works effectively with others to undertake and complete the isolate and access plant that meets all of the required outcomes including:
  • complying with written and verbal reporting requirements and procedures
  • communicating clearly and concisely with others to receive and clarify work instructions
  • communicating clearly and concisely with others to resolve coordination requirements prior to commencing and during work activities
  • demonstrates completion of isolating and accessing plant that safely, effectively and efficiently meets all of the required outcomes on more than one (1) occasion including:
  • isolation of plant including:
  • energy sources and immobilisation of potential energy sources
  • locks and tags on isolation devices
  • identifying and reporting breaches in permit procedure
  • completing permit to work form including:
  • statement of isolations
  • sign-on and sign-off
  • hand-over of plant and equipment
  • returning plant to service including:
  • obtaining confirmation and checking that work has been completed
  • removing locks and tags
  • restoring energy sources
  • identifying and correcting or reporting risks, hazards or issues
  • confirming all permits are cancelled before plant is brought back into operation

Knowledge Evidence

The candidate must demonstrate knowledge in Isolate and access plant through:

  • applying plant and equipment isolation points
  • identifying and managing potential plant and site hazards
  • concise completion of permit-to-work system and documentation
  • Identifying isolation devices — type and purpose

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

    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
