Pre-requisites and Co-requisites


Course Description

This unit covers planning the implementation of revegetation works and defines the standard required to: establish the purpose and client preferences for the site to be revegetated; carry out a site visit and confirm any planning requirements; develop a plan for the site, detailing the resources required and the program of works; develop timelines for the establishment and maintenance phases of the project; document the staged implementation plan.

National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria

National Element Code & Title:

AHCNAR402A Plan the implementation of revegetation works


1. Carry out preliminary planning activities for revegetation works

Performance Criteria:

1.1 Client preferences and contract requirements including the scope of the work for the revegetation project are confirmed and verified.
1.2 Specific statutory obligations and site responsibilities that may affect the implementation of works are identified.
1.3 An initial site visit is conducted to verify the biophysical and other factors of the project area including environmental considerations and historical modifications.
1.4 Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) obligations associated with the revegetation works are identified, OHS hazards are assessed and controls developed, costed and documented in the implementation plan according to enterprise guidelines.
1.5 The availability, quantity and costs of plants and other materials listed in the project schedules are verified.


2. Prepare a staged plan of work

Performance Criteria:

2.1 Resources, tools and equipment required for revegetation procedures and ongoing maintenance of the site are identified, costed and availability confirmed with suppliers, contractors and appropriate personnel.
2.2 Site access and establishment issues are investigated to consider and plan for the environmental impacts of site work practices, avoid safety hazards to workers or the public, and minimise disruption to site works during the construction period.
2.3 A program of works is prepared to provide a sequential allocation of resources and work tasks to meet the project contract timelines.
2.4 Timelines are developed for site establishment, the establishment period and maintenance of works.
2.5 Seasonal factors and impacts are incorporated in the staging strategy to allow for planting supply and care, wet day access, machinery use, fire hazards and establishment period.
2.6 Where required, special project works related to habitat resource development and enhancement are included in the staged implementation plan.
2.7 Document the staged implementation plan
