Coordinate log recovery (hook tender)

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 'Coordinate log recovery (hook tender)' 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 hook tender operations

1.1. Applicable Occupational Health and Safety (OHS), environmental, legislative and organisational requirements relevant to coordinating log recovery (hook tender) are identified and followed

1.2. Work order is reviewed and checked with appropriate personnel

1.3. Type and quantity of cable recovery equipment 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. Hooker 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. Plan cable system layout

2.1. Information essential to the planning of the cable system layout is obtained, evaluated and the site inspected for factors affecting harvesting operations and potential hazards

2.2. Landing location and size, hauling boundaries, access routes and construction requirements are provided to construction personnel

2.3. Cable system type is selected to provide optimum extraction rate for trees to be felled, considering site topography and codes of practice and minimising system design additions

2.4. General requirements for anchor points, backline and intermediate supports are identified and instructions given to fallers

3. Coordinate yarder and cable system set up

3.1. Rope sizes are selected for lines in line with the code of practice, yarder capacity and system design

3.2. Components and rigging are selected to meet code of practice requirements and system design

3.3. Components and lines are inspected during installation and set up

3.4. Site personnel are directed and assisted to layout lines, select anchors and position mobile backstops

3.5. Felled trees and extraction sequence are assessed for size, location and obstructions with recovery planned to minimise line shifts, log and environmental damage

3.6. Support trees are selected and directions provided for rigging

3.7. Unloaded and loaded system performance is checked and loads calculated to ensure they are within system and equipment capacity

3.8. Operations are monitored and procedural or system design changes to improve safety and payload efficiency noted and communicated

4. Coordinate rigging of spars, towers and trees

4.1. Cable system is checked from plans and operational requirements interpreted for tower, spars and support trees

4.2. Spars or support trees to be rigged, necessary guylines and required anchor points are checked from the plan or selected within guidelines provided, with trees topped in line with the code of practice

4.3. Rigging suitable for operational requirements, loads and rope sizes is selected to meet the code of practice and industry standards

4.4. Directions are provided to check components for wear, failure or missing parts prior to rigging, faults are identified and corrective action is taken

4.5. Rigging is coordinated on machine towers to prepare, assemble and fit operational lines in line with system design, prior to raising

4.6. Climbing and pass line equipment is identified to be operated in line with the code of practice

4.7. Guys positioning and rigging within location angle requirements of the code of practice to provide minimal difference in length and tension is coordinated

4.8. System components are checked to ensure they meet the code of practice for size, safe working load, layout, position, safety straps, joins, lead angles and operating angles

5. Coordinate line shifts and rigging modifications

5.1. Line shifts are anticipated and required rigging is prepared in advance

5.2. Limitations of system positioning or design are diagnosed and modifications planned in line with the code of practice

5.3. Operations are monitored and procedural changes to improve safety and payload efficiency noted and communicated

5.4. New support trees, anchor points and mobile tail anchor position are located and riggers assigned to prepare and rig these in line with system requirements

5.5. Breakout processes and equipment faults are recorded and reported to the appropriate personnel
