  • Operate mobile elevating work platform using best mobile practice
  • Use communication skills at a level sufficient to communicate with other site personnel
  • Operate and control an elevating work platform including all functions to their maximum extension within the safe working (rated) capacity
  • Apply risk assessment and hazard control strategies, including hierarchy of control as applied to the positioning and safe operation of the elevating work platform (particular awareness of the risks associated with overhead powerlines/electrical cables, ground conditions, wind, pedestrians and tipping)
  • Use and interpret manufacturer's specifications and data
  • Identify problems and equipment faults and where practicable demonstrate appropriate response procedures
Assessment
  • Assessment must be conducted using the endorsed Assessment Instruments. These Instruments provide advice on their application.
  • The use of 'simulators' in the assessment of this unit of competency is not acceptable.
