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
Registered Training Organisations
Trying to find someone to train or assess you? This link lists all the RTOs that are currently registered to deliver FWPHAR3201, 'Monitor log recovery (rigging slinger)'.
Google Links
links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
Books
Reference books for 'Monitor log recovery (rigging slinger)' on fishpond.com.au. This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to ntisthis.com for every purchase, so go nuts :)


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.

1. Prepare for rigging slinger operations

1.1 Review work plan and check where required with appropriate personnel.

1.2 Identify type and quantity of logs to be extracted and assess for safety and environmental protection practices.

1.3 Select appropriate equipment and check for operational effectiveness in line with manufacturer's recommendations.

1.4 Plan cable operation activities in line with work order.

2. Plan breakout

2.1 Plan and complete breakout operations in line with environmental conditions and workplace health and safety (WHS) procedures.

2.2 Identify audible or visual signal system to be used.

2.3 Assess site, rigged cable system and landing for slope, haul line, backline, lift capacity and landing chute.

2.4 Identify obstacles to extraction operations and develop avoidance plan.

2.5 Identify logs to be recovered with current and future haul lines.

2.6 Assess information to plan extraction pattern for typical number and size of logs to be hauled.

2.7 Plan line shifts during hauling; establish and prepare future rigging points and rigging.

3. Direct hook up of logs

3.1 Select specific logs for next turn prior to return of butt rigging in line with planned operation.

3.2 Assess stability of logs to be extracted and take precautions against movement in line with code of practice.

3.3 Direct choker setters to prepare and hook up logs ready for extraction.

3.4 Give haul signals, in line with code of practice, when all persons are clear from logs and bight of ropes.

3.5 Monitor log movement and stop for corrective action when difficulties occur.

3.6 Maintain control of movement using signalling systems until payload is in clear sight of yarder operator.

3.7 Record and report breakout process and equipment faults in line with site procedures.

4. Assist with line shifts

4.1 Select specific logs for next turn prior to return of butt rigging in line with planned operation.

4.2 Assess stability of logs to be extracted and take precautions against movement in line with code of practice.

4.3 Direct choker setters to prepare and hook up logs ready for extraction.

4.4 Give haul signals, in line with code of practice, when all persons are clear from logs and bight of ropes.

4.5 Monitor log movement and stop for corrective action when difficulties occur.
