Shift a load using manually-operated equipment

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.


Assess risks associated with relocating load


Products, goods or materials to be relocated are identified and assessed for the appropriate relocation method


Storage location is determined


Routes to be followed are identified


Points of balance are estimated


Effect of moving contents, which may be loose, liquid, dangerous or hazardous, are considered


Risks in potential route/s are considered


Lifting equipment to minimise potential risks is identified


Appropriate personal protective equipment is determined and worn


Tools, load shifting equipment and other materials are selected and checked for serviceability and defects are reported to supervisor


Plan load relocation


Load is examined to determine condition, length, bulk and weight


Load shifting equipment is selected in accordance with workplace procedures


Safe procedures for using lifting equipment are identified, including the calculation of safe working load (SWL) and/or working load limit (WLL) for weight of goods to be moved


Process for relocating load is proposed including predicting and planning for potential difficulties


Proposed process is checked against relevant code of practice and workplace procedures for compliance


Lifting equipment and accessories are checked for safe operation in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions and workplace procedures


Personal protective equipment is selected and worn in accordance with WHS/OHS requirements


Relocate load


Unsafe equipment is reported to appropriate personnel in accordance with workplace procedures


Load is broken down, where applicable, to allow handling and moving a number of single items to ensure the maximum weight of 500 kg is not exceeded


Mechanical aids and field machines are constructed, when required, by the approved shifting method, so the load can be shifted in accordance with job instructions


Safe working limits for lifting equipment are identified and maintained


Planned process and route are followed using equipment within necessary range of limitations


Relocated materials are set down without damage to goods, personnel or equipment and are checked for stability


Relocation is checked to see it meets work requirements and variances are reported


Refurbish equipment and worksite


Site is cleaned and cleared of debris and unwanted material


Field machines, tools and equipment are cleaned, inspected, serviced, maintained and stored in accordance with standard procedures


Documentation is completed in accordance with standard procedures
