Unit of competency name               Follow workplace safety procedures


Unit of competency number             BSBCMN106A



Unit Purpose

On successful completion of this unit you should be able to follow the safety procedures
required within your workplace.

You will learn about the basic OHS responsibilities of an employee at work and how to report
hazards, risks and safety issues through proper channels.

More specifically, you should be able to:

   follow workplace safety procedures, and
   contribute to occupational health & safety in the workplace.


Reporting of assessment outcomes

Your result will be recorded and reported to you as Competent or Not yet
Competent.


Requirements to successfully complete this unit of competency

To achieve a pass in this unit of competence you will need to demonstrate that you can

   follow workplace safety procedures, and
   contribute to Occupational Health & Safety in the workplace

You may have evidence of your competence from workplace skills, practice and performance.
You may provide this evidence from the workplace or from previous training to demonstrate
competence, or to supplement your assessment task.

NB. Evidence must be strictly relevant to the particular workplace role and is not intended to
include detailed aspects of OHS.


What you will need

Dependent upon the environment in which the learning is to take place, it may be necessary
for the students to be provided with appropriate PPE and induction training.

Guidelines for the collection of sufficient evidence

In order to deem a learner competent in this unit the assessment must confirm the
ability to determine, select, explain and correctly operate basic computer hardware
components and functions correctly and efficiently according to the task requirement.

Hardware consumables should be correctly identified and utilised according to the task
requirement.

Evidence of achievement of Element 1 and some components of Element 2 in this unit
could be through a written report where the learner identifies internal and external
hardware components and explains the interrelationship between computer hardware
and software.

Evidence of achievement of Element 2.6 in this unit is through a schematic
diagram where the learner shows the interconnection of the various components of a
computer.

Evidence of achievement of Element 3 in this unit could be by observing the learner
carrying out tasks for ICAU1128B - Operate a Personal Computer and ICAU1129B -
Operate a Word Processing application.

an apprentice/trainee. Your college will provide you with a detailed document about how
workplace assessment is facilitated.

You will be expected to complete both theoretical and practical assessments. Theoretical
assessment may be in the form of written/oral tasks, (reports, multiple choice, short or long
answer questions and some assessor observations). Practical assessment will involve the
designing, compiling sequences, editing and testing of multimedia incorporating video assets

Specifically, you will be able to:

   Assess digital image
   Edit digital image

Reporting of assessment outcomes
Your result will be recorded and reported to you as Competent or Not yet
Competent.

Requirements to successfully complete this unit of competency
You may be assessed in the workplace or in the college or both depending on your status as
an apprentice/trainee. Your college will provide you with a detailed document about how
workplace assessment is facilitated.

You will be expected to complete both theoretical and practical assessments. Theoretical
assessment may be in the form of written/oral tasks, (reports, multiple choice, short or long
answer questions and some assessor observations). Practical assessment involves the
learner editing a digital image on at least three occasions. The first of these will be self
assessment and the on two other occasions from different briefs.

What you will need
You will need to have access to a range of hardware, software and equipment in order to be
able to complete this unit. This will be the case whether the assessment takes place in the
workplace or in a simulated environment.

You will be expected to provide your own personal equipment as specified by TAFE and in
your workplace.

   30cm steel rule
   Stationery
   Camera storage card

The range statement relates to the unit of competency as a whole. It allows for different
work environments and situations that may affect performance. Bold italicised wording,
if used in the performance criteria, is detailed below. Essential operating conditions that
may be present with training and assessment (depending on the work situation, needs of
the candidate, accessibility of the item, and local industry and regional contexts) may
also be included.

Evidence Guide

The evidence guide provides advice on assessment and must be read in conjunction with
the performance criteria, required skills and knowledge, range statement and the
Assessment Guidelines for the Training Package.?
Critical aspects for assessment and evidence required to demonstrate competency
Evidence of the following is essential:

      The photographed image meets the quality and look / feel requirements of the brief.
       The digital camera functions are used to capture the required image
      The understanding of image editing should be transferable across associated sectors
       of the printing industry
      Evidence for assessment may be gathered from assessment of the unit of
       competency alone or through an integrated assessment activity

Context of and specific resources for assessment
Assessment must ensure:

      assessment may take place on the job, off the job or a combination of these. Off the
       job assessment must be undertaken in a closely simulated workplace environment
   appropriate image manipulation software, hardware and file storage capability

Method of assessment
A range of assessment methods should be used to assess practical skills and knowledge.
The following examples are appropriate for this unit:

    direct questioning combined with review of portfolios of evidence and third party
     workplace reports of on-the-job performance by the candidate.
Holistic assessment with other units relevant to the industry sector, workplace and job
role is recommended.
