Performance Evidence

The candidate must demonstrate the ability to complete the tasks outlined in the elements and performance criteria of this unit.

The candidate must demonstrate completion of integrated tool carrier operations that safely, effectively and efficiently follow workplace procedures to carry out work activity, and include:

  • conducting prestart checks prior to commencing operations and shutdown procedures on completion of operations
  • driving and operating the equipment, and adjusting techniques to suit site conditions
  • monitoring, assessing and adjusting equipment performance
  • lifting and moving load
  • coordinating activities with dogman to ensure correct selection of slings and lifting gear
  • coordinating activities with dogman to ensure load and equipment are secured and stabilised
  • moving the integrated tool carrier between worksites
  • selecting, fitting, testing, using and removing attachments, which must be certified and approved in line with workplace procedures
  • cleaning and storing attachments
  • securing and parking equipment

In the course of the above the candidate must also:

  • locate and apply relevant documentation, policies and procedures
  • select and wear personal protective equipment required for work activities
  • carry out vehicle refuelling requirements and procedures
  • apply safe work practices and identifying and reporting all potential hazards, risks and environmental issues
  • apply problem solving and troubleshooting techniques
  • interpret ground conditions
  • establish weight of load
  • lift and move load
  • monitor and manage equipment performance using indicators and alarms
  • identify common equipment faults
  • manage changes in the load’s centre of gravity during transportation
  • use a range of communication techniques and equipment essential to the safe completion of work activity, including hand, audible and other signals
  • meet written and verbal reporting requirements and procedures associated with integrated tool carrier operations

Knowledge Evidence

The candidate must be able to demonstrate knowledge to complete the tasks outlined in the elements and performance criteria of this unit. This includes:

Key policies and procedures and established requirements for integrated tool carrier operations, including those relating to:

  • fires, accidents and emergencies
  • maintenance and basic diagnostics
  • securing and stabilising load and equipment
  • guiding movement of equipment using approved signals
  • housekeeping activities
  • personal protective equipment
  • work health and safety

Key factors affecting work activities described in performance evidence above, including:

  • equipment processes, technical capability and limitations
  • techniques for calculating safe working loads
  • safety data sheet and materials handling methods
  • safe operating techniques in varying terrain
  • geological and technical data (basic)

Assessment Conditions

Mandatory conditions for assessment of this unit are stipulated below. The assessment must:

  • include access to:
  • integrated tool carrier
  • personal protective equipment
  • be conducted in a safe environment and
  • be assessed in context of this sector’s work environment and
  • be assessed in compliance with relevant legislation/regulation and using policies, procedures, processes and operational manuals directly related to the industry sector for which it is being assessed and
  • confirm consistent performance can be applied in a range of relevant workplace circumstances

Where personal safety or environmental damage are limiting factors, assessment may occur in a simulated work environment* provided it is realistic and sufficiently rigorous to cover all aspects of this sector’s workplace performance, including environment, task skills, task management skills, contingency management skills and job role environment skills.
