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

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 hook tender operations

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

1.2 Identify required type and quantity of cable recovery equipment 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 workplace health and safety (WHS) procedures and work plan.

2. Plan cable system layout

2.1 Obtain and evaluate information to plan cable system layout and inspect site for hazards and factors affecting harvesting operations.

2.2 Provide personnel with information about landing location and size, hauling boundaries, access routes and construction requirements.

2.3 Consider code of practice, site topography, minimising system design additions and select cable system type to optimise log extraction rate.

2.4 Identify general requirements for anchor points, backline and intermediate supports and provide instruction to fallers.

3. Coordinate yarder and cable system set up

3.1 Select rope sizes for lines in line with code of practice, yarder capacity and system design.

3.2 Select components and rigging to meet code of practice requirements and system design.

3.3 Inspect and install components and lines.

3.4 Direct and assist personnel to layout lines, select anchors and position mobile backstops.

3.5 Assess felled trees for location, size and obstructions; plan recovery extraction sequence to minimise line shifts, log and environmental damage.

3.6 Select support trees and provide directions for rigging.

3.7 Check unloaded and loaded system performance and calculate loads to ensure they are within system and equipment capacity.

3.8 Monitor operations, change and communicate procedures or system design to improve safety and payload efficiency.

4. Coordinate rigging of spars, towers and trees

4.1 Check cable system plans and determine operational requirements for tower, spars and support trees.

4.2 Ensure rigging of spars, towers and trees complies with code of practice.

4.3 Check and select spars or support trees to be rigged, guylines and anchor points.

4.4 Select rigging and rope sizes to meet load.

4.5 Provide directions to check components for wear, failure or missing parts prior to rigging; identify faults and take corrective action.

4.6 Coordinate rigging on machine towers to prepare, assemble and fit operational lines, prior to raising, in line with system design.

4.7 Identify climbing and pass line equipment.

4.8 Coordinate guyline positioning and rigging within location angle requirements to provide minimal difference in length and tension.

4.9 Check system components for size, safe working load, layout, position, safety straps, joins, lead angles and operating angles.

5. Coordinate line shifts and rigging modifications

5.1 Anticipate line shifts and prepare required rigging in advance.

5.2 Diagnose limitations of system design or positioning and plan modifications in line with code of practice.

5.3 Monitor operations; change and communicate procedures to improve safety and payload efficiency.

5.4 Locate new support trees, anchor points and mobile tail anchor position; assign riggers to prepare and rig in line with system requirements.

5.5 Record and report breakout processes and equipment faults in line with site procedures.
