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 grind rail welds and faults on tram or light rail systems in accordance with approved standards, safeworking and regulatory requirements, and organisational procedures.

It includes determining job requirements, grinding weld and/or weld repair, grinding rail to repair surface defects and completing required documentation.

This competency relates to grinding new welds and welded repairs on the rail and check rail, grinding out corrugations and re-profiling the rail.

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

Pre-requisite Unit

Not applicable.

Competency Field

W – Equipment and Systems Operations

Unit Sector

Performance 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 on at least five  separate occasions and include:

  • applying relevant safeworking system and workplace procedures
  • grinding rail on tram or light rail system in accordance with workplace specifications and procedures
  • identifying job hazards and taking required action to minimise, control or eliminate identified hazards
  • interpreting and following operational instructions and prioritising work
  • modifying activities depending on operational contingencies, risk situations and environments
  • operating and adapting to differences in equipment in accordance with operating procedures
  • reading and interpreting relevant technical data, drawings, instructions and manuals
  • reporting and/or rectifying identified problems, faults or malfunctions, in accordance with workplace procedures
  • selecting and using hand tools, power tools and equipment
  • 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:

  • documentation and record keeping requirements
  • grinding methods and results
  • hazards that may exist when grinding rail and welds, and ways of controlling the risks involved
  • problems that may occur when grinding rail and welds, and action that can be taken to report or resolve these problems
  • rail industry standards for rail profile and surface condition
  • relevant safety, work health and safety (WHS)/occupational health and safety (OHS) and environmental procedures and regulations
  • workplace procedures for grinding rail and welds.

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 tram or light 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.
