Application
This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to implement and monitor an
organisation’s work health and safety (WHS) policies, procedures and programs in the
relevant work area in order to meet legislative requirements.
It applies to individuals with supervisory responsibilities for implementing and monitoring the
organisation’s WHS policies, procedures and programs in a work area. These individuals have
a broad knowledge of WHS policies and contribute well developed skills in creating solutions
to unpredictable problems through analysis and evaluation of information from a variety of
sources. They provide supervision and guidance to others and have limited responsibility for
the output of others.
NOTE: The terms 'occupational health and safety' (OHS) and 'work health and safety' (WHS)
are equivalent and generally either can be used in the workplace. In jurisdictions where the
Model WHS Legislation has not been implemented RTOs are advised to contextualise the unit
of competency by referring to the existing State/Territory OHS legislative requirements.
No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of
publication.

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to manage the identification, review,
development, implementation and evaluation of effective participation and consultation
processes as an integral part of managing work health and safety (WHS).
It applies to individuals with responsibility for enabling people to be consulted about, and to
participate in, WHS management and decision making across the organisation. These
individuals will work in a range of WHS roles across all industries and apply a substantial
knowledge base and well developed skills in a wide variety of WHS contexts.
NOTE: The terms 'occupational health and safety' (OHS) and 'work health and safety' (WHS)
are equivalent and generally either can be used in the workplace. In jurisdictions where the
Model WHS Legislation has not been implemented RTOs are advised to contextualise the unit
of competency by referring to the existing State/Territory OHS legislative requirements.
No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of

Evidence Guide
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.
Overview of assessment
A person who demonstrates competency in this unit must
be able to interpret technical drawings as described.
Critical aspects for assessment and
evidence required to demonstrate
competency in this unit
Assessors must be satisfied that the candidate can
competently and consistently perform all elements of the
unit as specified by the criteria, including required
knowledge, and be capable of applying the competency
in new and different situations and contexts.
Context of and specific resources for This unit may be assessed on the job, off the job or a
assessment
combination of both on and off the job. Where
assessment occurs off the job, that is the candidate is not
in productive work, then an appropriate simulation must
be used where the range of conditions reflects realistic
workplace situations. The competencies covered by this
unit would be demonstrated by an individual working
alone or as part of a team. The assessment environment
should not disadvantage the candidate.
This unit could be assessed in conjunction with any other
units addressing the safety, quality, communication,
materials handling, recording and reporting associated
with interpreting technical drawings or other units
requiring the exercise of the skills and knowledge
covered by this unit.
Method of assessment
Assessors should gather a range of evidence that is valid,
sufficient, current and authentic. Evidence can be
gathered through a variety of ways including direct
observation, supervisor's reports, project work, samples
and questioning. Questioning should not require
language, literacy and numeracy skills beyond those
required in this unit. The candidate must have access to
all tools, equipment, materials and documentation
required. The candidate must be permitted to refer to any
relevant workplace procedures, product and
manufacturing specifications, codes, standards, manuals
and reference materials.

Application of the unit
The unit covers the development of plans for individual
complete activities and may include the use of planning
techniques and tools.
The activity may require prioritising of the individual plan
components to facilitate the meeting of the objectives.
Examples of activities to be planned may include: fault
diagnosis and repair of an item of equipment, a
modification of an established sequence of assembly tasks.
However the activities may require a response and
modification of procedures or a choice of different
procedures to deal with unforeseen developments.
Activities are normally performed by the individual
undertaking the planned activity, and associated reports
are completed as required. Planning will be related to
familiar work tasks and environments and be performed to
standard operating procedures.

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.
Overview of assessment
A person who demonstrates competency in this unit must
be able to plan a complete activity.
Critical aspects for assessment and
evidence required to demonstrate
competency in this unit
Assessors must be satisfied that the candidate can
competently and consistently perform all elements of the
unit as specified by the criteria, including required
knowledge, and be capable of applying the competency
in new and different situations and contexts.
Context of and specific resources for This unit may be assessed on the job, off the job or a
assessment
combination of both on and off the job. Where
assessment occurs off the job, that is the candidate is not
in productive work, then an appropriate simulation must
be used where the range of conditions reflects realistic
workplace situations. The competencies covered by this
unit would be demonstrated by an individual working
alone or as part of a team. The assessment environment
should not disadvantage the candidate.
This unit could be assessed in conjunction with any other
units addressing the safety, quality, communication,
materials handling, recording and reporting associated
with planning a complete activity or other units requiring
the exercise of the skills and knowledge covered by this
unit.
Method of assessment
Assessors should gather a range of evidence that is valid,
sufficient, current and authentic. Evidence can be
gathered through a variety of ways including direct
observation, supervisor's reports, project work, samples
and questioning. Questioning techniques should not
require language, literacy and numeracy skills beyond
those required in this unit of competency. The candidate
must have access to all tools, equipment, materials and
documentation required. The candidate must be
permitted to refer to any relevant workplace procedures,
product and manufacturing specifications, codes,
standards, manuals and reference materials.

Application of the unit
In a typical scenario a team leader or team member
examines the manual handling component of a job and
improves it in terms of safety, effort required and
efficiency. This may be conducted for a job performed
by others in the team, or it may be for the person's own
job.
This unit primarily requires the application of skills
associated with problem solving and initiative and
enterprise to identify safe and efficient manual handling
and planning and organisation to ensure processes are
implemented. This unit also requires communication
with and involvement of team members to ensure they
understand the approach and to facilitate training.

control of processes in manufacturing.
Application of the Unit
Application of the unit
In a typical scenario, statistical process control is being
used on a process in a manufacturing organisation.
Usually this will be to monitor the process and
determine when action needs to be taken. The
appropriate action will then be taken in accordance with
standard procedures.
To do this the person will apply their knowledge of
frequency distribution and variation to the data/chart to
distinguish between random and non-random variation
and their understanding of the process and/or equipment
to help interpret those results.
This unit primarily requires the application of skills
associated with gathering and analysing data and
communicating statistical information to others. This
unit also has a strong emphasis on problem solving,
initiative and enterprise, planning and organising, and
self management to solve problems and manage
processes.

Application of the Unit
Application of the unit
This is the highest level sustainable environmental
practices unit in the CM. In a typical scenario, there is a
need to reduce waste in the value chain. Part of this is
the cost of environmental resources to the process.
Some of this is necessary waste but a large part of
environmental resource use may be unnecessary waste
and so should be totally eliminated. In order to make
these savings, there is a need to analyse environmental
resource use and cost in all its forms and then develop
and implement plans for the more efficient use of
energy.
This unit primarily requires the application of
communication and problem solving skills associated
with collecting and analysing information. An ability to
analyse resource use of technology or processes will be
applied. Initiative and enterprise, and planning and
organising are also required to develop plans for
efficient resource use. This unit also requires aspects of
self management and learning to ensure feedback and
new learning is integrated into the development of
processes.

Emphasis should be on the ability to follow proper procedures in order to save oneself from
possible injury and/or death.
Consistent performance should be demonstrated. For example, look to see that:


emergency situations are recognised and communicated promptly
emergency procedures are understood and followed.
These aspects may be best assessed using a range of scenarios/case studies/what ifs as the
stimulus with a walk through forming part of the response. These assessment activities should
include a range of problems that may have been generated from the past incident history of
the workplace and incidents on similar operations around the world.
Assessment method and context
Assessment for this unit will be on a processing plant or in a manufacturing environment.
Simulation may be required to allow for timely assessment of parts of this unit of
competency. Simulation should be based on the actual work environment and will include
walk throughs of the relevant competency components. Simulations may also include the use
of case studies/scenarios and role plays. Emergency drills are a common and appropriate
simulation.
This unit of competency requires a body of knowledge which will be assessed through
questioning and the use of 'what if' scenarios both in the workplace (during demonstration of
normal operations and walk throughs of abnormal operations) and off the job.
Assessors need to be aware of any cultural issues that may affect responses to questions.
Assessment processes and techniques must be culturally appropriate and appropriate to the
oracy, language and literacy capacity of the assessee and the work being performed.
It is expected that this competency may be applicable in combination with other industry,
occupation or workplace-specific competencies. In all cases it may be appropriate to assess
this unit concurrently with relevant teamwork and communication units.
Specific resources for assessment
Assessment will require access to an operating plant or work environment over an extended

MSS014003A Optimise sustainability of a process or plant area
Modification History
Not applicable.
Unit Descriptor
This unit of competency covers optimising the sustainability performance of a complete work
area in a plant or part of the manufacturing value chain. It includes ensuring that production
systems comply with sustainability and other environmental requirements and that optimal
process, plant and equipment utilisation is planned and carried out. It also covers problem
solving to fully meet sustainability needs and to ensure that production of finished goods
meets customer requirements.
Application of the Unit
This unit applies inside organisations and their value chains. The unit has been developed
with manufacturing operations as a focus especially work areas that process materials or
components to manufacture products. However, because of the range of organisations in a
typical manufacturing value chain it may also be applied to other types of organisations.
The unit scope includes products made, services offered, and use of sites by an organisation or
manufacturing value chain member (e.g. supplier of goods or services or a customer).
This unit describes the work conducted by senior operators, technicians, team leaders or
frontline managers and other support staff who optimise process systems as part of their work
function. The unit includes all items of equipment and unit operations which form part of the
process of a complete area and assumes that the required production, technical, science or
other operational skills and knowledge necessary to work in the process or work area have
already been gained.
All operations are performed in accordance with organisational procedures, licensing
requirements, legislative requirements and industrial awards and agreements.
Environmental sensitivities referred to in this unit are at the issue level. The technical
measurement of operational performance or measurement of emissions or other
environmental impact is not covered by this unit.

Evidence Guide
Overview of assessment
A person who demonstrates competency in this unit must
be able to analyse current sustainability performance of a
process or plant area and prepare proposals for
measurable improvement in sustainability.
Critical aspects for assessment and
evidence required to demonstrate
competency in this unit
Assessors must be satisfied that the candidate can
competently and consistently apply the skills covered in
this unit of competency in new and different situations
and contexts. Critical aspects of assessment and evidence
include:



Context of and specific resources for
assessment




Method of assessment



analysing and evaluating current production
performance, and developing and implementing plans
to optimise process systems
determining sustainability impacts of current
processes and products in work area
developing proposals for improvement to processes
that are measurable and positively impact on
sustainability.
This unit of competency is to be assessed in the
workplace or a simulated workplace environment.
Assessment should emphasise a workplace context
and procedures found in the candidate’s workplace.
This unit of competency may be assessed with other
relevant units addressing sustainability at the
enterprise level or other units requiring the exercise
of the skills and knowledge covered by this unit.
The competencies covered by this unit would be
demonstrated by an individual working alone or as
part of a team.
In all cases, practical assessment should be supported
by questions to assess underpinning knowledge and
those aspects of competency which are difficult to
assess directly.
Where applicable, reasonable adjustment must be
made to work environments and training situations to
accommodate ethnicity, age, gender, demographics
and disability.
The language, literacy and numeracy demands of
assessment should not be greater than those required
to undertake the unit of competency in a work-like
environment.

Changeover may refer to:


an exchange of equipment (often dies or tools
(traditional))
a change between products/batches or between
campaigns or processes. It may be any quantum
change to produce a different product or undertake a
different process
In competitive systems and practices equipment-based
quick changeover techniques in manufacturing can often
be referred to under different names, for example:



Set-up
single minute exchange of die (SMED) – The term
originated with die changeovers but now often refers
to the ability to perform any set-up activity in a
minute or less of machine or process downtime
single-digit set-up – performing a set-up activity in a
single-digit number of minutes (i.e. fewer than ten)
one touch exchange of die (OTED) – literally,
changing a die with one physical motion, such as
pushing a button; broadly, an extremely simple
procedure for performing a set-up activity
Set-up can be divided into two types:


internal set-up (work that can be done only when the
machine or process is not actively engaged in
production)
external set-up (work that can be done concurrently
with the machine or process performing production
duties)
The same distinction can be applied to non-production
equipment-based work areas where changeovers of
processes or operations can be:

procedures to their own job and work area. The unit assumes the employee has a particular
job and an allocated work area and that processes in the work area are known by the
individual.
Application of the Unit
This unit applies to an individual in an organisation who works in an operational position as
part of production, maintenance, logistics, and so on. The unit can also apply to individuals in
other organisations who have a discrete role and responsibility for individually managed
processes. For employees in an office, the specific office-related unit MSS402041A Apply 5S
in an office should be selected.
This unit applies where an organisation has decided to embark on a competitive systems and
practices strategy and as part of this has adopted the philosophy of 5S as one of the tools to
improve performance. The employee needs to apply 5S to their job and work area and
maintain the housekeeping and other standards set by 5S.
This unit requires the application of skills associated with planning and organising, problem
solving and self-management, in order to identify and implement 5S housekeeping practices.

Unit Descriptor
This unit of competency covers the skills and knowledge required for gathering of data and
the interpretation of simple information to determine the compliance of the process and the
taking of action as defined by the procedures where the information reveals the process is out
of control parameters.
Application of the Unit
This unit applies to an individual in an organisation adopting specific competitive systems and
practices, usually either six sigma or statistical process control/three sigma, as a means of
determining and improving the capability of their process to customer requirements. The
individual is involved in collecting specified data and performing specified manipulations to
the data (typically by plotting on a chart or by entering into a nominated computer program).
The information is typically presented to team members in terms of graphs/charts which they
are expected to interpret at a basic level and then take action in accordance with procedures to
restore the process to being under control parameters.
This unit requires the application of skills associated with entering and monitoring operational
data and information and requires initiative, enterprise and problem solving in identifying
production variations and making improvement recommendations.

Unit Descriptor
This unit of competency covers the skills and knowledge required to implement and review
competitive systems and practices in a person’s own work within a team or work area,
including the consideration of the impact on the work of others. The unit focuses on the
holistic application of competitive systems and practices to achieve improved performance in
own work and in activities with others in the team or work area that contribute to improving
customer benefit.
Application of the Unit
This unit applies to individuals who are applying competitive systems and practices to their
own work in a way that integrates with others in the team or work area who are also
implementing competitive systems and practices. Depending on the operations or processes in
the team or work area the unit may also include interaction with other teams and work areas.
The unit is suitable for individuals who have formal responsibility for the work of others, such
as team leaders. It is also suitable for individuals, such as technicians and tradespeople, who
must integrate the application of their technical skills with the implementation of competitive
systems and practices in an organisation.
The unit applies to the areas of cost, quality, delivery, safety/environment, and employee
capability including continuous reviewing of performance against these five areas in liaison
with other relevant people. Improvement initiatives in these five areas are usually developed
and implemented with the support of technical support staff. Whereas other units may
emphasise the competence to use one or more competitive practices, this unit emphasises the
ability to advance on all five key areas over a moderate time period.
This unit requires the application of skills associated with problem solving and initiative and
enterprise in order to identify opportunities to make improvements and maximise
performance. Communication, the ability to work in a team and planning and organising skills
are required to implement improvements and address any conflicts that arise. This unit also
requires an ability to identify appropriate technology, and to consider and integrate feedback
on how personal performance can be improved.

equivalent
Unit Descriptor
This unit of competency covers the skills and knowledge required to ensure that the gains
which have been made by using improved methods, processes and equipment are sustained as
the new baseline/standard for an area of work and so prevent regression to former practices,
or digression to less efficient practices.
Application of the Unit
This unit applies to individuals working in a team or work area who have already
implemented competitive systems and practices related improvements in their own work and
who must work effectively with others implementing competitive systems and practices to
ensure that performance improvement gains are sustained.
The unit is also suitable for individuals who have formal or informal responsibility for the
work of others, such as team leaders; individuals, such as senior operators, who must mentor
others; or individuals, such as technicians and tradespeople, who must integrate the
application of their technical skills with the implementation of competitive systems and
practices in an organisation.
The unit can be applied to all areas of an organisation, including production, maintenance,
logistics and office functions.
The unit covers the implementation of practices to ensure that process improvements are
sustained and opportunities taken to suggest further improvements. If mistake proofing is used
as one of the methods for ensuring that process improvements are sustained, the unit
MSS403051A Mistake proof a production process should be selected.
Improvement initiatives can be made by any of any number of methods and by teams or
individuals. The unit assumes that desired levels of performance or quality are known.
This unit requires the application of skills associated with problem solving, initiative and
enterprise, and planning and organising in order to check and monitor the impacts of change.
It also requires communication and the ability to work with others to assess the impact of
change in own work and on other’s work, as well as self-management and learning to adapt
improvements according to new information and feedback.

Modification History
New unit, superseding MSACMT451A Mistake proof a production process - Equivalent
Unit Descriptor
This unit of competency covers the skills and knowledge required to make changes to own
and others work in a work area which prevents errors and/or backsliding to a
pre-improvement level of practice.
Application of the Unit
This unit applies to a person who needs to analyse a process that a team is responsible for and
determine methods of mistake proofing it (e.g. ensuring it only produces product within an
acceptable range or error-free transport and storage of goods). The person will typically be a
technical expert, team leader or be in a role where they have sufficient technical
understanding of processes in their own work and that of others to be able to mistake proof
the production process in their area. After improvement activities have been undertaken these
improvements need to be sustained.
This unit requires the application of skills associated information gathering and analysis.
Initiative, enterprise and problem solving are also required to identify mistakes and determine
strategies for eliminating them. This unit also requires communication and teamwork skills to
ensure mistake proofing strategies are implemented and self-management and learning skills
to continually reflect on and integrate feedback about the effectiveness of strategies.
