Install mechanical signalling locking and interlocking devices

Assessment tool

Version 1.0
Issue Date: December 2018


This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to install mechanical signalling locking and interlocking devices in accordance with safeworking and regulatory requirements, and workplace procedures

It includes assembling components, installing equipment and components to specifications, and testing and adjusting equipment in accordance with workplace procedures.

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 installing mechanical signalling locking and interlocking devices, 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)
