Employ air-lift devices underwater
Issue Date: September 2018
As agreed in the creation of this Training Package, applications for units transferred from the PUA00 Public Safety Training Package will be developed as part of continuous improvement plans, and taking into account the change in Unit of Competency format as detailed in templates for Streamlined Training Packages.
This unit covers the competency required to move submerged objects using air-lift devices (i.e. bags).
The unit includes selecting and inspecting the bags appropriate to the lift, securing the bags to the object and inflating the bags to the required buoyancy in order to manoeuvre the object under control. Attention must be given to safety of other divers and nearby vessels and/or structures during work, as well as consideration for the environment.
Note: This Unit of Competency relates, in part, to the existing standards of the Australian Diver Accreditation Scheme (ADAS). All information was correct at the time of development of this Unit of Competency; however, any diver seeking ADAS accreditation should consult ADAS and not rely on the information contained in this unit.
