Elective


Work safely in the construction industry

Code - CPCCOHS1001A Contact Hours - 6
This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to undertake Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) induction training within the construction industry. It requires the ability to demonstrate personal awareness of OHS legislative requirements, and the basic principles of risk management and prevention of injury and illness in the construction industry. Licensing requirements will apply to this unit of competency depending on the regulatory requirements of each jurisdiction.

Undertake minor maintenance

Code - MSMSUP240 Contact Hours - 30
This unit of competency covers the skills and knowledge required to undertake minor maintenance and solve routine problems to procedures. It does not cover activities normally requiring traditional trade training. This unit of competency covers minor maintenance, such as: operational maintenance (e.g. connection-disconnection of hoses, greasing, lubrication and lubricant systems, adjusting sealing glands, cleaning and changing filters and 'nipping up' flanges) general cleaning removal and replacement (e.g. gland packing, changing blades or cutters, replacing gaskets, replacing/maintaining seals, changing filter elements and servicing strainers). In a typical scenario a plant operator does minor maintenance activities on the plant and equipment being operated. For instance, the pressure drop across a filter unit may be high, indicating the filter cartridge needs changing. The operator takes the filter unit out of operation, cleans the unit, uses the correct spanner to open the lid, installs a fresh cartridge, closes the unit using the spanner again, then cleans up the area and disposes of the spent cartridge. Typically this sort of maintenance will be done on the plant and will not require workshop type facilities.
