Perform hazardous action sequences involving animals

Formats and tools

Unit Description
Reconstruct the unit from the xml and display it as an HTML page.
Assessment Tool
an assessor resource that builds a framework for writing an assessment tool
Assessment Template
generate a spreadsheet for marking this unit in a classroom environment. Put student names in the top row and check them off as they demonstrate competenece for each of the unit's elements and performance criteria.
Assessment Matrix
a slightly different format than the assessment template. A spreadsheet with unit names, elements and performance criteria in separate columns. Put assessment names in column headings to track which performance criteria each one covers. Good for ensuring that you've covered every one of the performance criteria with your assessment instrument (all assessement tools together).
Wiki Markup
mark up the unit in a wiki markup codes, ready to copy and paste into a wiki page. The output will work in most wikis but is designed to work particularly well as a Wikiversity learning project.
Evidence Guide
create an evidence guide for workplace assessment and RPL applicants
Competency Mapping Template
Unit of Competency Mapping – Information for Teachers/Assessors – Information for Learners. A template for developing assessments for a unit, which will help you to create valid, fair and reliable assessments for the unit, ready to give to trainers and students
Observation Checklist
create an observation checklist for workplace assessment and RPL applicants. This is similar to the evidence guide above, but a little shorter and friendlier on your printer. You will also need to create a seperate Assessor Marking Guide for guidelines on gathering evidence and a list of key points for each activity observed using the unit's range statement, required skills and evidence required (see the unit's html page for details)

Self Assessment Survey
A form for students to assess thier current skill levels against each of the unit's performance criteria. Cut and paste into a web document or print and distribute in hard copy.
Moodle Outcomes
Create a csv file of the unit's performance criteria to import into a moodle course as outcomes, ready to associate with each of your assignments. Here's a quick 'how to' for importing these into moodle 2.x

Elements and Performance Criteria



Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Prepare for execution of hazardous action sequences involving animals

1.1 Notify relevant personnel of arrival at location, and confirm capacity to deliver hazardous action sequences

1.2 Review skills requirements and own experience, and that of other specialist personnel, for relevance to proposed sequences

1.3 Assess condition and temperament of animals and familiarise all personnel with commands and cues

1.4 Note camera locations for coverage of hazardous action sequences

1.5 Evaluate hazardous action sequences to determine most appropriate physical warm-up activity

1.6 Note props, sets and equipment to be used in hazardous action sequences involving animals, and confirm their technical suitability with relevant personnel

1.7 Note positioning and movement of all personnel and animals involved in hazardous action sequences to facilitate visual continuity and editing

1.8 Consider alternative execution methods for specific hazardous action sequences

1.9 Confirm, with relevant personnel, that planned hazardous action sequences comply with legal and regulatory requirements

2. Attend personnel briefings

2.1 Review hazardous action sequence information

2.2 Confirm communication methods, chain of command, cues, and abort and emergency action procedures

2.3 Check technical specifications for production materials to be used and advise relevant personnel of issues that need addressing

2.4 Confirm hazardous action sequences are consistent with the style of production

3. Set up, check and prepare production area

3.1 Unload, secure and supervise animals and production materials to be used in hazardous action sequences

3.2 Check all equipment and animal handling procedures comply with safety standards and regulatory requirements and notify relevant personnel of non-compliance issues

3.3 Review camera positions for latent safety issues

3.4 Prepare body to perform hazardous action sequences performance through warm-up activities

3.5 Check production areas are clear of unwanted objects and unnecessary personnel

4. Safely test hazardous action sequences

4.1 Identify spot marks and other visual cues to assist in positioning during hazardous action sequences

4.2 Confirm that all personal protective equipment (PPE) and other safety equipment is fitted and functioning correctly

4.3 If possible within budgetary and safety constraints, test hazardous action sequences through simulation or rehearsals

4.4 Advise relevant personnel if testing identifies the need to revise planned hazardous action sequences

4.5 Abort hazardous action sequences where unacceptable risk emerges, and advise relevant personnel

5. Safely perform hazardous action sequences

5.1 Comply with relevant PPE requirements

5.2 Check whether other high-risk activities are taking place in the same scenes

5.3 Check again that areas are clear of unwanted objects and unnecessary personnel

5.4 Execute sequences according to production schedules and cues

5.5 Follow all safety controls and regulatory requirements during execution of sequences

5.6 Implement alternative safeguards for all production personnel where variations to agreed production plans occur

5.7 Abort hazardous action sequences where unacceptable risk arises and advise relevant personnel

5.8 Check continuity for hazardous action sequences is maintained throughout execution

6. Respond to emergency situations

6.1 Abort activities and implement emergency plans in the event of accidents

6.2 Clear sites of all personnel and, if possible, remove items that may cause further injury

6.3 Identify items or locations that may need to be isolated for safety and investigative activities

6.4 Advise relevant personnel of emergency situations according to established procedures

7. Secure locations on completion of hazardous action sequences

7.1 Check inventory of, transport and store production materials used in the execution of hazardous action sequences in accordance with regulatory requirements

7.2 Inspect locations to ensure they are left in a safe and secure state

7.3 Assess condition of animals used in hazardous action sequences and advise animal handlers of issues arising from their involvement in hazardous action sequences

7.4 Participate in post-sequence evaluations and provide feedback to guide future productions

7.5 Complete personal logbook and contribute to final written reports as required
