Special notes

1     This unit standard is designed to be assessed against in the workplace, or an
      equivalent environment.

2     All tasks must be carried out in accordance with the falsework plan and
      manufacturer’s requirements, and workplace procedures based on industry
      requirements in:
      a     the most up to date version of the Best Practice Guidelines for Scaffolding in
            New Zealand, revised 2003 (published by Scaffolding and Rigging New Zealand
            Incorporated, Box 31067 LOWER HUTT 5040, Telephone 04 589 0253);
      b     health and safety requirements and guidelines relating to scaffolds, particularly
            Approved Code of Practice for the Safe Erection and Use of Scaffolding
            (Wellington: Occupational Health and Safety Service, Department of Labour,
            1995);
      c     manufacturer’s operating instructions; and
      d     government and local government legislation, regulations, and bylaws.

3     Definitions
      Scaffolding is defined in the Best Practice Guidelines for Scaffolding in New Zealand
      (BPGFS) and additionally in the Health and Safety in Employment Regulations 1995.
      Falsework is a scaffolding process as defined in the BPGFS. For the purposes of
      this unit standard elementary falsework is restricted to shoreload frames.

4     This unit standard is to be assessed in the erection and dismantling of single or
      double tower falsework to a maximum of two frames high using shoreload frames.

5     The use of terms in this unit standard is consistent with the BPGFS.

Elements and performance criteria
Element 1

Determine the load to be supported by elementary falsework.

Performance criteria

1.1        The load is calculated in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications or
           falsework design.

            Range        must include – dead loads, live loads, environmental loads, safe
                         working loads (SWL).

1.2        Ground load bearing capacity is confirmed with the BPGFS and manufacturer’s
           instructions.

           Range         may include engineer’s recommendations.

2.2       Base plates or base jacks are positioned and secured.

2.3       Shoreload frames are erected and cross braced in accordance with the BPGFS
          and manufacturer’s instructions.

2.4       The structure is checked for vertical and squared.

Please note

Providers must be accredited by NZQA, or an inter-institutional body with delegated
authority for quality assurance, before they can report credits from assessment against
unit standards or deliver courses of study leading to that assessment.

Industry Training Organisations must be accredited by NZQA before they can register
credits from assessment against unit standards.

Accredited providers and Industry Training Organisations assessing against unit standards
must engage with the moderation system that applies to those standards.

Accreditation requirements and an outline of the moderation system that applies to this
standard are outlined in the Accreditation and Moderation Action Plan (AMAP). The
AMAP also includes useful information about special requirements for organisations
wishing to develop education and training programmes, such as minimum qualifications for
tutors and assessors, and special resource requirements.
