Tips for gathering evidence to demonstrate your skills

The important thing to remember when gathering evidence is that the more evidence the better - that is, the more evidence you gather to demonstrate your skills, the more confident an assessor can be that you have learned the skills not just at one point in time, but are continuing to apply and develop those skills (as opposed to just learning for the test!). Furthermore, one piece of evidence that you collect will not usualy demonstrate all the required criteria for a unit of competency, whereas multiple overlapping pieces of evidence will usually do the trick!

Instructions to Assessors

Evidence Guide

The assessment process must address all of the following items of evidence.

Ability to:

1. Access workplace information relating to environmental management and responsibilities

2. Use necessary environmental control measures related to work responsibilities

3. Monitor environmental parameters established. Examples include relevant parameters for airborne particulates, noise, odour and water

4. Handle and store chemicals safely

5. Select, fit and use appropriate personal protective clothing and equipment

6. Observe appropriate emergency procedures in the event of non-conformance. This can include following emergency procedures, notifying relevant personnel and reporting the incident in the appropriate format

7. Record workplace information

Knowledge of:

8. Awareness of the environmental management system and procedures

9. Legal obligations and responsibilities

10. Consequences of non-compliance

11. Detailed knowledge of environmental aspects, impacts relevant to own work

12. Range of control measures relevant to own work

13. Safe work procedures

14. Environmental operating parameters

15. Procedures for responding to non-compliance

16. Emergency procedures and personnel

17. Documentation and reporting procedures

18. Waste collection, handling, treatment and disposal requirements

Relationship with other standards

Pre-requisite units

There are no pre-requisite units for this competency standard.

Co-assessment of related units

Other units of competency relevant to the work role should be assessed in conjunction with this unit.

Resources required for assessment

Assessment must occur in a real or simulated workplace where the assessee has access to:

environmental management plan

advice on relevant legislation and codes

work process or sub-system

specifications and other advice on environmental requirements

work instructions and procedures, including environmental operating parameters

waste collection, treatment, recycling and/or disposal methods

environmental aspects and impacts relating to work processes

monitoring system

reporting system

Assessment requirements

For information on how to assess this competency standard and who can assess, refer to the Assessment Guidelines for this Training Package.

Required Skills and Knowledge

Not applicable.

Range Statement

The range statement indicates the context for demonstrating competence. This statement is a guide and unless otherwise indicated, items may or may not apply as required by the work context.

Work is carried out in accordance with company policies and procedures, licensing requirements, manufacturer's recommendations, legislative requirements, codes of practice and industrial awards and agreements. Codes of practice include the Sugar Milling Operations Industry Code of Practice

Work procedures can involve handling chemicals, implementing environmental controls and collecting, handling and treating or disposing of waste, recycled materials and by-products

Chemical storage procedures include locating chemicals in designated storage locations, storing compatible chemicals in the one location and securing chemicals against spillage, for example through the use of bunding and trays

Responding to non-compliance includes recognising and responding to any event which occurs as part of the work process and presents an unacceptable environmental risk

Where work is conducted in restricted or confined spaces, appropriate training/certification must be provided according to state safety requirements

An environmental aspect is any activity, product or service which has the potential to affect the environment

An environmental impact is the actual problem or consequence which results from an environmental aspect

Risk assessment includes identifying the likelihood that an environmental impact will occur and the magnitude of the problem if it does occur

A control measure is a method or procedure used to prevent or mitigate environmental impacts

Identification of aspects, impacts and application of controls relate to own work responsibilities

Work may require the ability to work within a team environment

Involvement in continuous improvement can include participation in structured improvement programs and day-to-day problem solving
