PERFORMANCE CRITERIA 

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

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

1 

Undertake track assessment 

1.1

Track work activity to be performed is identified and its complexity is analysed

1.2

Impact of the work activity on the network is determined

1.3

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

1.4

Track protection requirements are analysed and identified

1.5

Visual assessment is conducted to assess the characteristics of the track worksite

  • relevant safeworking system workplace rules and procedures
  • types of track protection and safeworking systems
  • types of worksite protection equipment and their use
  • work activity complexity
  • worksite protection plans.

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 or, where this is not available, in simulated workplace operational situations that replicate rail corridor 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
  • relevant and appropriate materials, tools, equipment and personal protective equipment currently used in industry
  • applicable documentation and terminology as defined by the relevant Rail Infrastructure Manager safeworking system including workplace procedures, regulations, rules and codes of practice.
