Shift loads manually utilising non-motorised equipment

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. Where bold italicised text is used, further information is detailed in the range of conditions section.

1. Plan and prepare to shift the load

1.1 Select and wear personal protective equipment.

1.2 Identify the type of load, safe working load and working load limits, and the distance and/or height to be moved from job instructions.

1.3 Determine condition, length, bulk, weight, most appropriate method to shift the load and resources required.

1.4 Record any damage to load and report to supervisor.

1.5 Develop a movement plan to identify potential difficulties and request approval for the method of shifting the load and any requirement for additional personnel from the supervisor.

1.6 Select and check for serviceability tools, load shifting equipment and other materials and report any defects to the supervisor.

1.7 Prepare work site to ensure sufficient clear space is available.

2. Shift the load

2.1 Break down load to allow handling and moving a number of single items to ensure the maximum weight of 500 kg is not exceeded.

2.2 Use mechanical strapping equipment and other securing devices to stabilise the load.

2.3 Sling/unsling the load using the correct securing devices.

2.4 Construct mechanical aids and field machines by the approved shifting method, so that the load can be shifted.

2.5 Identify and maintain safe working limits for lifting equipment.
