Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1. This is the first release of this unit of competency in the UEG Gas Industry Training Package.

Application

This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to assess the gas and safety equipment on a delivery vehicle for the distribution of gaseous fuel in accordance with relevant legislation, codes of practice, regulations and workplace procedures.

It includes assessing gas and safety equipment on delivery vehicles by identifying faults, using workplace operating procedures, liaising with appropriate persons, and conducting inspections and tests.

This unit applies to work sites where the bulk distribution of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) occurs using delivery vehicles, and subject to work health and safety (WHS)/occupational health and safety (OHS) and duty of care requirements being met for the workplace.

This unit is intended as an entry level unit, for new entrants in the gas industry. It is suitable for employment-based programs.

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

Pre-requisite Unit

Not applicable.
