Repair concrete/masonry structures

Assessment tool

Version 1.0
Issue Date: December 2018


This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to repair concrete/masonry structures and their components in accordance with safeworking and regulatory requirements, and workplace procedures.

It includes determining job requirements, preparing components, performing repairs and cleaning up the site after maintenance activities.

People achieving competence in this unit will need to fulfil the applicable state/territory legislated rail safety requirements and to comply with relevant codes of practice and/or guidelines.

Work is performed under minimal supervision, generally within a team environment. It involves the application of routine operational principles and procedures when repairing concrete/masonry structures and their components, as part of workplace activities across a variety of operational contexts within the Australian rail system.

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)
