Knowledge Evidence

Evidence required to demonstrate competence in this unit must be relevant to and satisfy all of the requirements of the elements and performance criteria and include knowledge of:

  • current Australian Dangerous Goods (ADG) Code and relevant state/territory mass and loading regulations as they apply to vehicles transporting liquid bulk gas
  • hazard management consistent with the principle of hierarchy of control with elimination, substitution, isolation and engineering control measures being selected before safe working practices and personal protective equipment
  • housekeeping standards and procedures
  • methods of securing a vehicle following transferring liquid bulk gas
  • relevant permit and licence requirements
  • risks when transferring liquid bulk gas and related precautions to control the risk
  • work health and safety (WHS)/occupational health and safety (OHS) procedures and guidelines for using specialised bulk transfer equipment
  • workplace procedures and policies for efficiently using specialised equipment to transfer liquid bulk gas.

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, current ADG Code, codes of practice and operation manuals
