Coordinate hazardous action sequences

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. Plan execution of hazardous action sequences

1.1 In consultation with relevant personnel, check whether planned hazardous action sequences can be safely filmed in line with technical and script requirements

1.2 Inspect locations to determine suitable camera locations for coverage of hazardous action sequences

1.3 Identify skills needed to perform sequences and confirm all personnel have the required licences

1.4 Assess technical suitability of props, set and equipment to be used by the hazardous action sequence cast and crew to ensure they meet safety and production requirements

1.5 Determine positioning and movement of personnel involved in hazardous action sequences to facilitate visual continuity and editing

1.6 Plan and prepare alternative execution methods for hazardous action sequences

1.7 Review and discuss emergency plans to be implemented in the event of accidents

1.8 Confirm planned hazardous action sequences comply with legal and statutory approval requirements

2. Conduct personnel briefings

2.1 Prepare information about hazardous action sequences and distribute to relevant personnel with daily call and running sheets

2.2 Provide operational safety briefings to relevant personnel and confirm communication methods, chain of command, cues, and abort and emergency action procedures

2.3 Check relevant cast and crew members have received instructions about technical requirements for hazardous action sequences

3. Set up production equipment for hazardous action sequences

3.1 Supervise unloading, positioning and assembly of all equipment to be used in hazardous action sequences

3.2 Confirm equipment and handling procedures comply with required safety standards and regulatory requirements and resolve problems promptly

3.3 Confirm camera positions and check for latent safety issues

3.4 Clear the area of non-essential objects and unnecessary personnel

3.5 Within budgetary constraints, approve testing of hazardous action sequences

3.6 Negotiate revisions to hazardous action sequences if safety concerns arise as a result of tests

3.7 Abort hazardous action sequences where unacceptable risk is evident and advise relevant personnel

4. Safely execute hazardous action sequences

4.1 Check all personnel involved in action sequences are wearing the required personal protective equipment

4.2 Supervise execution of sequences according to production schedules and cues

4.3 Check relevant production personnel adhere strictly to safety controls and regulatory requirements during execution of sequences

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

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

4.6 Check continuity is maintained throughout the execution of hazardous action sequences

5. Respond to emergency situations

5.1 Abort activity and implement emergency plans in the event of accidents

5.2 Remain calm and take a leadership role during emergencies

5.3 Clear the site of all personnel and if possible, remove items that may cause further injury

5.4 Advise relevant production personnel of emergency situations

6. Secure location on completion of hazardous action sequences

6.1 Supervise transport and storage of all materials, props and equipment used in hazardous action sequences in line with regulatory requirements

6.2 Leave location in a safe and secure state, and check all regulatory requirements have been met

6.3 Conduct post-sequence evaluations with relevant personnel and use results to guide future operations

6.4 Prepare final written reports as required
