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 undertake measurement and marking of track for resurfacing operations in accordance with safe working and regulatory requirements, and workplace procedures.

It includes identifying and marking track obstructions, using appropriate measurement tools to measure the range of geometry elements, calculating recording and marking data for resurfacing operations, and recording and reporting results.

People achieving competence in this unit will need to fulfil the applicable state/territory legislated rail safety requirements and to comply with relevant codes of practice and/or guidelines.

Work is performed under minimal supervision, generally within a team environment. It involves the application of routine operational principles and procedures when measuring and marking track for resurfacing across a variety of operational contexts.

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

  • using appropriate measurement tools to measure the range of geometry elements
  • working systematically with required attention to detail without injury to self or others, or damage to goods or equipment.

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:

  • details of safeworking system procedures
  • hazards that may exist when measuring and marking track for resurfacing, and ways of controlling the risks involved
  • methods of marking and protecting obstructions
  • obstructions to resurfacing operations, including operation of tampers, ballast regulators and stabilisers
  • problems that may occur when measuring and marking track for resurfacing operations, and action that can be taken to report or resolve these problems
  • relevant rail danger zones
  • relevant records procedures
  • relevant safety, work health and safety (WHS)/occupational health and safety (OHS) and environmental procedures and regulations
  • track data requirements for resurfacing
  • track geometry parameters associated with maintenance and/or construction such as alignment, top, line, twist, superelevation
  • workplace procedures for recording and analysing track parameters.

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 including workplace procedures, regulations, rail industry standards, codes of practice and operation manuals.
