Plan and conduct specialised lift

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.


Inspect site


Site is inspected as required with other relevant personnel, to assess job requirements


All necessary parameters are measured to ensure accuracy of calculations


Hazards are identified through inspection of site and load, and required action is taken to minimise, control or eliminate identified hazards


Additional information about load and possible hazards is sought from customer and expert personnel, as required


Special site requirements are identified


Plan lift


Operation plan is developed in consultation with other relevant personnel, including hazard prevention/control measures in accordance with workplace procedures, applicable Australian Standards and codes of practice


Approval to carry out lift is obtained from appropriate statutory authority, as required


Multiple crane lifts are planned, as required, to encompass determination of types of cranes suitable for use and an assessment of load share to be carried by each crane


Crane load chart is interpreted and information on permissible loads, radii, weights, boom and jib are taken into account in planning job


Safe working load (SWL) or working load limit (WLL) is calculated


Appropriate drawings and simulations are created to check feasibility of planned operations


Information from previous lifts is used in developing operational plan


Range of alternatives is considered to ensure effective and safe lift


Unsolicited, irrelevant information is disregarded to focus on task at hand


Need for additional/specialised equipment is ascertained and arrangements are made for collection/delivery to site


Communications system is determined and all team members are briefed on its use when conducting lift


Set up lift


Site measurements and SWL/WLL are checked to verify accuracy


Operating and emergency controls are checked to ensure crane is in safe working order


Appropriate personal protective equipment is selected and worn in accordance with manufacturer specifications and site requirements


Site is isolated as required and assistance is sought to ensure public safety as required


Other personnel on site are directed, as required to ensure risks to personnel and equipment are minimised


Variables that affect operation predictability are eliminated wherever possible


Work effectively in a team


Consultation with all team members is sought in developing operational plan


Ideas are discussed and evaluated with team members to determine viability and to reach consensus on an effective plan


Individual roles and responsibilities are clarified and agreed


Other team members are assisted as required, to ensure operation can be completed safety and efficiently


Lift and move load


Nominated authorised person is recognised as being in control and instructions are followed


Test runs are conducted as required to ensure a safe lift


Load is hoisted and lowered into position using crane movements in accordance with the appropriate Australian Standard


Danger is anticipated by monitoring crane and load, and instruction to stop operation is given, when there are concerns lift is not proceeding as planned


Potential impact of change in one area of operation on lift as a whole, is recognised


In unanticipated situations, contribution is made to developing alternative operational plan


Follow up on job


Specialised equipment is checked and re-stored in accordance with workplace procedures


Operation is reviewed in consultation with relevant personnel and contribution is made to recommendations for review of procedures as required


Need for further afterjob debriefing or counselling is recognised and appropriate action is taken


Records are completed promptly in accordance with workplace procedures
