Unit Of competency

Modification History

This unit replaces RIIWHS302D Implement traffic management plan. Significant endorseable amendments have been made to Elements, Performance Criteria, Foundation Skills, Performance Evidence and Knowledge Evidence to better reflect current industry practices and clarify training outcomes.

Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to set out, monitor and close down traffic management plans and traffic guidance schemes in civil construction.

It applies to those working in supervisory roles. They generally work in teams in live traffic environments and hold some responsibility for the outcomes of others.

Licensing, legislative and certification requirements that apply to this unit can vary between states, territories, and industry sectors. Users must check requirements with relevant body before applying the unit.

Note: The terms Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) and Work Health and Safety (WHS) are equivalent and generally either can be used in the workplace. In jurisdictions where the National Model WHS Legislation has not been implemented registered training organisations are advised to contextualise the unit of competency by referring to the existing state/territory OHS legislative requirements.

Assessment requirements

Modification History

This unit replaces RIIWHS302D Implement traffic management plan. Significant endorseable amendments have been made to Elements, Performance Criteria, Foundation Skills, Performance Evidence and Knowledge Evidence to better reflect current industry practices and clarify training outcomes.

Performance Evidence

The candidate must demonstrate the ability to complete the tasks outlined in the elements, performance criteria and foundation skills of this unit, including evidence of the ability to:

  • implement traffic management plans in a manner that is safe and follows workplace policies and procedures on at least three separate live traffic projects, including:
  • completing at least two of the following:

~ lane closure

~ lateral shift

~ implementing a traffic management plan at an intersection

  • completing at least one project controlling site construction vehicles.

During the above, the candidate must:

  • locate and apply required legislations, documentation, policies and procedures including documentation required for worksite projects and required traffic management
  • work with traffic control personnel to implement and complete a traffic management plan and traffic guidance scheme that meets all required outcomes including:
  • confirming all necessary resources are available, including qualified personnel
  • confirming all personnel understand, and are able to implement, their roles, task requirements, safety requirements and reporting requirements
  • communicating with others to resolve resourcing and coordination requirements prior to and during work activities
  • confirming that unattended sites and shut-down procedures are completed according to traffic management plan and traffic guidance scheme
  • complying with written and verbal reporting requirements and procedures, including reporting offending road users.

Knowledge Evidence

The candidate must be able to demonstrate knowledge to complete the tasks outlined in the elements, performance criteria and foundation skills of this unit, including knowledge of:

  • required legislation, regulations, codes and procedures including Austroads Codes of Practice and WHS applicable to temporary traffic management
  • temporary traffic management principles
  • risk management principles and procedures for identifying, analysing and treating potential hazards and risks
  • key principles for implementing WHS, including the role of Job Safety Analysis, Job Safety and Environmental Analysis and Safe Work Method statements.
  • scope of authority to modify traffic management plan and traffic guidance scheme
  • basic signalling procedures for temporary traffic management
  • procedures for selecting, using and placing signs and devices, including sequences of installation and removal and provisions for unattended sites
  • radio operations procedures and protocols
  • equipment types, characteristics, technical capabilities and limitations, including for required specialist and externally-sourced equipment
  • site isolation, traffic control and emergency responsibilities and authorities.

Assessment Conditions

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

  • include access to:
  • traffic management plan
  • traffic guidance scheme
  • personal protective equipment
  • devices, equipment and signs specified in the performance criteria
  • be conducted in a safe environment; and,
  • be assessed in the context of this sector's work environment on a real live road setting under supervision; and,
  • be assessed in compliance with relevant legislation/regulation and using policies, procedures and processes 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 regulatory standards as set out in the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015/Australian Quality Training Framework 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 the required level of RII training product knowledge
  • having an understanding and knowledge of legislation and regulations relevant to the industry and to employment and workplaces
  • demonstrating the performance evidence, and knowledge evidence 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 have current industry skills directly relevant to the training and assessment being provided. This means the industry subject matter expert must 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 Companion Volume 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.
