Hook up felled logs using cables (choker)

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

1.1. Applicable Occupational Health and Safety (OHS), environmental, legislative and organisational requirements relevant to hooking up felled logs using cables (choker) are identified and followed

1.2. Work order is reviewed and checked with appropriate personnel

1.3. Type and quantity of logs to be extracted are identified and assessed for safe working conditions and environmental protection measures

1.4. Equipment is selected appropriate to work requirements and checked for operational effectiveness in line with manufacturer's recommendations

1.5. Choker setter and cable operations activities are planned in line with site procedures

1.6. Communication with others is established and maintained in line with OHS requirements

2. Hook up logs

2.1. Specific logs for next turn is attended prior to return of butt rigging in line with planned operation

2.2. Stability of logs to be extracted is monitored and precautions are taken against movement in line with the logging code of practice

2.3. Position of logs to be extracted is assessed with regard to haul line, hook up point and likely movement

2.4. Positioning of butt rigging is directed and controlled using signals and strawlines to facilitate planned hook ups

2.5. Slack is pulled out for chokers and grapple ropes to allow safe hook up

2.6. Chokers or grapples are set close to the end of the logs

2.7. Area surrounding logs is vacated prior to extraction signal, clear of possible log release

2.8. Hook up process and equipment faults are reported to the rigging slinger

3. Assist with line shifts

3.1. All logs to be hauled with existing line position is cleared before line shift is initiated

3.2. Stumps are notched in line with code requirements for the rigging method to be used

3.3. Slack is pulled in on all lines prior to release of existing rigging

3.4. Rigging components are dismantled from the existing line, checked and set up on the new line

3.5. Obstructions which may cause binding or damage during hauling are moved as required

3.6. Rigging slinger is assisted with rigging of spars, tail trees and intermediate supports
