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



Plan execution of the hazardous action sequence

1. In consultation with relevant personnel and with reference to production documentation, confirm requirements for hazardous action sequences so that technical and script needs can be safely met when filming commences

2. Conduct location inspection with relevant personnel to assess suitable camera locations for coverage of hazardous action sequences

3. Identify specific skills needed to perform sequences and confirm that all personnel possess required skills and licences

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

5. Determine positioning and movement of all personnel involved in the hazardous action sequences to support ease of visual continuity and editing

6. Plan and prepare alternative execution methods for hazardous action sequences

7. Review and discuss where necessary emergency plans to be implemented in the event of an accident

8. Confirm that planned hazardous action sequences comply with all legal and statutory approval requirements

Conduct dedicated personnel briefing

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

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

11. Ensure that relevant cast and crew members are instructed in and familiar with specific technical requirements of hazardous action sequences, props and equipment

Set up production equipment for hazardous action sequences

12. Unload, position and assemble all equipment to be used in hazardous action sequences

13. Confirm that equipment and handling procedures comply with required safety standards and regulatory requirements and notify relevant personnel of any problems

14. Reconfirm camera positions and evaluate latent safety issues

15. Clear the area of non-essential objects and personnel

16. Within budgetary constraints, test or rehearse hazardous action sequences

17. Negotiate revisions to hazardous action sequences if safety concerns arise as a result of tests or rehearsals

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

Safely execute hazardous action sequences

19. Ensure that all personnel involved in production sequences are wearing relevant personal protective equipment

20. Execute sequences according to agreed production schedule and cues

21. Ensure that relevant production personnel adhere strictly to safety controls and regulatory requirements during the execution of sequences

22. Implement alternative safeguards for all production personnel where variations occur to the agreed production plan

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

24. Ensure that continuity is maintained throughout the execution of hazardous action sequences

React to emergency situations

25. Abort activity and implement emergency plans in the event of accidents

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

27. Advise relevant production personnel of the situation

Secure location on completion of hazardous action sequences

28. Collect, transport and store all materials, props and equipment used in the performance of hazardous action sequences in line with regulatory requirements

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

30. Conduct post-sequence evaluation with relevant personnel and evaluate results and feedback in order to guide future operations

31. Prepare final written reports for relevant production personnel as required
