Unit of competency

Modification History

Release 1. This is the first release of this unit of competency in the Transmission, Distribution and Rail Sector Training Package Release 4.0.

Application

This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to perform overhead energised low voltage (LV) work in an electricity supply industry (ESI) environment. This does not include the connection of overhead services.

It includes energised LV overhead mains work techniques and the use of specialised equipment in accordance with workplace requirements.

Note:Those holding an existing Certificate III ESI - Distribution Overhead qualification or equivalent meet the prerequisite unit requirements.

Refer to the UET Transmission, Distribution and Rail Sector Companion Volume Implementation Guide for equivalency definition.

The application of the skills and knowledge described in this unit may require a licence/registration to practice in the workplace.

Other conditions may also apply under state and territory legislative and regulatory licensing requirements which must be confirmed prior to commencing this unit.

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 one occasion and include:

  • identifying hazards, assessing risks and applying control measures
  • obtaining, inspecting and using relevant personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • using at least three (3) of the following specialised low voltage (LV) equipment:
  • insulating mats/sleeves
  • temporary bridging device
  • insulating gloves
  • tensioning devices
  • pole shrouds
  • maintaining correct body positioning to avoid secondary points of contact
  • performing work on energised LV overhead electrical apparatus in accordance with workplace requirements.

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:

  • organisational workplace requirements for work on energised LV overhead electrical apparatus including:
  • energised LV work principles and techniques
  • role of safety observer
  • hazard, risk assessment and risk control requirements including potential hazards
  • types and application of PPE
  • specialised LV equipment including:
  • types
  • application
  • care and maintenance
  • inspection and testing.

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 workplace operational situations where it is appropriate to do so.

Where this is not appropriate, assessment must occur in simulated conditions involving realistic and authentic activities that replicate operational 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 must include access to:
