Elements and Performance Criteria

ELEMENTS 

PERFORMANCE CRITERIA 

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1 

Inspect conveyor system and work area 

1.1

Conveyor equipment is checked prior to start-up in accordance with workplace procedures and manufacturer safety checks and specifications, to ensure it is free from damage and obstructions that may limit operational capability

1.2

Hazards are identified, risks are assessed and control measures are implemented

1.3

Work area is checked to ensure it is safe and appropriate for required task

2 

Check equipment operational capability 

2.1

Conveyors are inspected after start-up in accordance with manufacturer specifications, and workplace inspection specifications and procedures

2.2

Warning systems are checked for operational effectiveness

2.3

Records are checked to determine maintenance history and requirements and goods carried

3 

Identify, assess faults and report inspection and testing results 

3.1

Faults are identified and assessments are made of potential effect on equipment operation for required work, and details are forwarded to relevant personnel in accordance with workplace procedures

3.2

Accurate reporting of inspection and testing results is kept in accordance with regulatory requirements, workplace policy and industry guidelines

3.3

Clear reference is made to any items that may affect future equipment safety/operation

3.4

Conveyor system is continually monitored for safe and efficient operation

Foundation Skills

Foundation skills essential to performance are explicit in the performance criteria of this unit of competency.

Range of Conditions

Range is restricted to essential operating conditions and any other variables essential to the work environment.

Assessment Conditions

As a minimum, assessors must satisfy applicable regulatory requirements, which include requirements in the Standards for Registered Training Organisations current at the time of assessment.

As a minimum, assessment must satisfy applicable regulatory requirements, which include requirements in the Standards for Registered Training Organisations current at the time of assessment.

Assessment must occur in workplace operational situations where it is appropriate to do so; where this is not appropriate, assessment must occur in simulated workplace operational situations that replicate workplace conditions.

Assessment processes and techniques must be appropriate to the language, literacy and numeracy requirements of the work being performed and the needs of the candidate.

Resources for assessment include:

  • a range of relevant exercises, case studies and/or simulations
  • applicable documentation including workplace procedures, regulations, codes of practice, safe plant and equipment guidelines and operation manuals
  • relevant materials, tools, equipment and personal protective equipment currently used in industry.
