Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1. This is the first release of this unit of competency in the TLI Transport and Logistics Training Package.

Application

This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to set up and rig a mobile crane for a lift. It includes the systematic positioning and stabilisation of the crane and its assembly prior to lift in a variety of operational contexts.

Work must be carried out in compliance with the relevant state/territory authority mobile crane operations licence/permit requirements and regulations.

Work is performed with limited or minimum supervision, with limited accountability and responsibility for self and others in achieving the prescribed outcomes.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.

Pre-requisite Unit

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 of setting up and rigging a mobile crane for a lift 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 and involve the movement of equipment, goods, materials and vehicular traffic.

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 and operation manuals, including relevant:
  • state/territory regulations and licence/permit requirements pertaining to mobile cranes
  • state/territory road rules
  • state/territory WHS/OHS legislation
  • state/territory environmental protection legislation
  • relevant materials, tools and equipment
  • personal protective clothing and equipment, including:
  • gloves
  • safety headwear and footwear
  • sunscreen, sunglasses and safety glasses
  • two-way radios
  • high visibility clothing.
