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 operate specialised light load shifting equipment, in accordance with relevant state/territory codes, licence and/or permit and workplace requirements and regulations in the stevedoring, transport, warehousing and/or logistics industries.

It includes planning work for current working conditions; using controls and equipment operating systems to manage moving a unit and accessory operations; locating load and identifying load characteristics; moving materials and loads; monitoring and operating controls; and stopping, parking and securing equipment after operation.

Safety checks and equipment tests are performed under limited supervision.

Where the specialised light load shifting equipment operated is considered to be high risk work, the operator must hold a high risk work licence.
