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 two separate occasions and include:

  • applying relevant work health and safety (WHS)/occupational health and safety (OHS) requirements, including using risk control measures
  • applying sustainable energy practices
  • dealing with unplanned events/situations in accordance with workplace procedures in a manner that minimises risk to personnel and equipment
  • implementing and monitoring participative arrangements for the management of environmentally sustainable work practice
  • implementing and monitoring the procedures for environmentally sustainable work practice
  • implementing and monitoring the procedures for identifying hazards, assessing risks and controlling risks
  • implementing and monitoring the procedures for maintaining environmentally sustainable work practice records
  • implementing and reviewing sustainable energy procedures
  • planning, implementing and monitoring environmentally sustainable work procedures
  • providing environmentally sustainable work practice information to the work group.

  • environmentally sustainable work principles, including:
  • relevant environmental legislation
  • sustainable practice
  • effects of neglecting sustainable practice
  • benefits of sustainable initiatives
  • techniques for reducing the use of carbon-based energy sources and hence greenhouse gas emissions
  • domestic, commercial and industrial strategies
  • trade-related technologies and methods
  • renewable energy (RE) technologies
  • energy efficient retrofits
  • implementing and monitoring, including:
  • principles and practice of effective sustainable practice management

Assessment Conditions

Assessors must hold credentials specified within the Standards for Registered Training Organisations current at the time of assessment.

Assessment must satisfy the Principles of Assessment and Rules of Evidence and all regulatory requirements included within the Standards for Registered Training Organisations current at the time of assessment.

Assessment must occur in suitable workplace operational situations where it is appropriate to do so; where this is not appropriate, assessment must occur in simulated suitable 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.
