Employ power tools in an underwater environment

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



1. Prepare to use power tools underwater

1.1 Work task, worksite data and work object are determined and analysed to determine the specific requirements for power tools.

1.2 Work plan is developed consistent with the dive plan.

1.3 Power tools and protective equipment are selected, inspected and prepared.

1.4 Compressor and associated leads and hoses are selected, inspected and prepared.

1.5 Power tools, compressor, and associated leads and hoses are secured safely to/from the dive site.

1.6 Access obstructions and other hazards are assessed and action is taken to remove/reduce the risk.

1.7 Occupational health and safety (OH&S) requirements and recognised safety precautions are applied in accordance with standard procedures, manufacturers' instructions and legislation.

2. Operate power tools underwater

2.1 Power tools are secured on self during the dive for ease of accessibility and lack of interference with mobility and dive equipment.

2.2 Safe route for leads and hoses is established.

2.3 Work-safe area is established and the location and safety of divers is confirmed prior to commencing work task/s.

2.4 Power tools are operated underwater ensuring management of their associated hazards.

2.5 Operator maintenance is conducted at the worksite on power tools, leads and hoses.

2.6 Power tools are temporarily disconnected and rendered safe to evaluate the work task.

3. Operate the compressor

3.1 Pre-start checks are performed, and hoses and leads are connected.

3.2 Pressure is developed gradually without surging and compressor is stabilised and trimmed to required work output.

3.3 Routine operational checks are conducted and warning signs are diagnosed and addressed.

3.4 Compressor is shut down.

3.5 Emergency shut down is conducted.

4. Conclude power tool operations

4.1 Environmental impact arising from the use of power tools is minimised and waste products are recovered.

4.2 Power tools, leads and hoses are de-serviced after use.

4.3 Compressor is de-serviced after use.

4.4 Equipment log books are completed.
