Report on the integrity of explosion-protected equipment in a hazardous area

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

ELEMENT

PERFORMANCE CRITERIA

1

Prepare to work in hazardous area.

1.1

Nature of the explosion hazard in the area is known and the status of the explosion hazard is ascertained through established procedures.

1.2

Operation and condition of plant and machinery, with regards to explosion-protection, is ascertained through established procedures.

1.3

Established procedures for use of the plant and machinery, with regards to explosion-protection techniques used in the area, are followed.

2

Observe condition of explosion-protection system area.

2.1

OHS policies and procedures, with regards to explosion-protection, are followed.

2.2

Performance of plant and machinery is monitored to identify faults that may affect the integrity of the explosion-protected equipment and wiring system.

2.3

Observations of explosion-protected equipment and wiring are made during normal operations and visual non-conformances that may affect the integrity of the explosion-protection technique are identified.

2.4

Explosion hazard monitoring equipment is observed and a potentially dangerous state of the hazard is identified, e.g. by using gas detectors.

3

Take actions to limit risk of an explosion.

3.1

Variations outside normal operating conditions are reported and documented in accordance with established procedures

3.2

Non-conforming tools, equipment and testing devices are reported and documented in accordance with established procedures.

3.3

Established procedures are followed in the event of a potential or immediate hazardous condition arising from any non-conformance identified in equipment/wiring or changes in the explosion hazard to a potentially dangerous state.
