Operate and monitor machines (basic)

Assessment tool

Version 1.0
Issue Date: September 2018


This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to operate and monitor machines under supervision according to enterprise requirements.

It applies to individuals working as machine-minders and off-siders assisting in the operation of a machine. This unit is an integral part of most printing and converting, and binding and finishing produce units.

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

You may want to include more information here about the target group and the purpose of the assessments (eg formative, summative, recognition)

operate, monitor, shut down and clean any ONE machine according to manufacturer’s specifications under the supervision of, or in conjunction with, a worker with the appropriate skills.

Note: If a specific volume or frequency is not stated, then evidence must be provided at least once.

To complete the unit requirements safely and effectively, the individual must:

handling of supplies, parts and finished product

explain how to avoid back strain when lifting heavy objects

explain how to avoid damaging finished product

identify supplies that require special handling

For reel systems only

identify area of the web control system to adjust to maintain correct web tension

For sheet systems only

outline areas of the transport and delivery systems to monitor to ensure trouble-free operation

describe what to check when removing a substrate from the machine

Maintaining production processes

outline the basic criteria for assessing finished product

list adjustments to the machine to correct TWO different production or quality problems

Shutdown procedures

list areas of the machine that are modified during shutdown

identify areas of the machine to check for possible repair

describe details to include when labelling unused ink

Cleaning and washing machine

explain how an ineffective wash-up can effect the following production run

Health and safety

identify health and safety factors that must be considered when:

setting and/or operating machine transport and delivery systems

operating and monitoring the production process

washing a machine

safely switching off machinery before cleaning.

Gather evidence to demonstrate consistent performance in conditions that are safe and replicate the workplace. Noise levels, production flow, interruptions and time variances must be typical of those experienced in the Support field of work and include access to a printing or converting machine in a production environment.

Assessors must satisfy NVR/AQTF assessor requirements.
