Monitor log recovery (rigging slinger)

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

Reference books for 'Monitor log recovery (rigging slinger)' on This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to for every purchase, so go nuts :)

Elements and Performance Criteria



1. Prepare for rigging slinger operations

1.1. Applicable Occupational Health and Safety (OHS), environmental, legislative and organisational requirements relevant to monitoring log recovery (rigging slinger) 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 is 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. Rigging slinger and cable operation activities are planned in line with site procedures

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

2. Plan breakout

2.1. All work is conducted in line with work order, environmental and OHS requirements

2.2. Audible or visual signal system to be used is identified

2.3. Site, the rigged cable system and landing are assessed for slope, haul line, backline, lift capacity and landing chute

2.4. Obstacles to extraction operations are identified and avoidance plan is developed

2.5. Logs to be recovered using current and future haul lines are identified

2.6. Extraction pattern for the typical number and size of logs to be hauled on each turn is planned using assessment information

2.7. Line shifts are planned during hauling, future rigging points established and rigging is prepared

3. Direct hook up of logs

3.1. Specific logs for next turn are selected prior to return of butt rigging in line with planned operation

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

3.3. Choker setters are directed to prepare and hook up logs ready for extraction

3.4. Haul signals are given when all persons are clear from logs and bight of ropes using signalling systems in line with the cable logging code of practice

3.5. Log movement is monitored and stopped for corrective action when difficulties occur

3.6. Control of movement is maintained using signalling systems until payload is in clear sight of the yarder operator

3.7. Breakout processes and equipment faults are recorded and reported in line with site procedures

4. Assist with line shifts

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

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

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

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

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

4.6. Spars, tail trees and intermediate supports are rigged in line with site procedures
