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



Prepare for execution of hazardous action sequences involving animals

1. Notify relevant personnel of your arrival on location

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

3. Confirm with relevant personnel your capacity to deliver all specific hazardous action sequences

4. Note all camera locations for coverage of the hazardous action sequences

5. Review skills requirements and experience of self and other specialist personnel for relevance to proposed sequences

6. Evaluate all hazardous action sequences to determine most appropriate physical warm-up activity required

7. Familiarise self with all props, sets and equipment dedicated to hazardous action sequences involving animals and confirm technical suitability with relevant personnel

8. Recall positioning and movement of all personnel and animals involved in hazardous action sequences to support ease of visual continuity and editing

9. Consider and review alternative execution methods for specific hazardous action sequences

10. Confirm with relevant personnel that the planned hazardous action sequences comply with legal and regulatory requirements

Participate in dedicated personnel briefings

11. Review all hazardous action sequence information

12. Attend briefings of relevant personnel and confirm communication methods, chain of command, cues, and abort and emergency action procedures

13. Check available technical specifications for all production materials to be used and advise relevant personnel of issues arising

Set up, check and prepare production area

14. Unload, secure and supervise animals and production materials to be used in specific hazardous action sequences

15. Check that all equipment and animal handling procedures comply with given technical specifications in terms of required safety standards and regulatory requirements and notify relevant personnel of emergent issues

16. Review camera positions for latent safety issues

17. Prepare body for hazardous action sequences performance through relevant warm-up activities

18. Confirm with relevant personnel that hazardous action sequences meet stylistic production requirements

19. Ensure that production areas are clear of unwanted objects and personnel

Safely test hazardous action sequences

20. Identify and recall relevant spot marks and other visual cues to assist in positioning during hazardous action sequences

21. Reconfirm that all personal protective equipment (PPE) and other specified safety equipment is fitted and functioning correctly

22. If possible within budgetary and safety constraints, determine the operation of hazardous action sequences by test, demonstration, simulation or rehearsal

23. Advise relevant personnel of any revision to planned hazardous action sequences identified through test, demonstration, simulation or rehearsal

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

Safely perform hazardous action sequences

25. Comply with relevant PPE requirements

26. Reconfirm with relevant personnel where specific production requirements involve other high-risk activities

27. Recheck that areas are clear of unwanted objects and personnel

28. Execute sequences according to agreed production schedules and cues

29. Follow all safety controls and regulatory requirements during execution of sequences

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

31. Abort hazardous action sequences where unacceptable risk arises during execution and advise relevant personnel

32. Ensure that continuity for hazardous action sequences is maintained throughout execution

Respond to emergency situations

33. Abort activities and implement emergency plans in the event of accidents

34. Clear sites of all personnel and if possible remove items that may cause further injury

35. Identify items or locations that may need to be isolated for safety and investigatory activities post-emergency situation
