Regardless of the mode of delivery, represent a guide to the relative teaching time and student effort required to successfully achieve a particular competency/module. This may include not only scheduled classes or workplace visits but also the amount of effort required to undertake, evaluate and complete all assessment requirements, including any non-classroom activities.

Pre-requisites and Co-requisites


Course Description

This unit deals primarily with the process involved in completing documentation and/or making appropriate modifications to pre-prepared documents. It covers: i) occupational work hazard identification, ii) identifying health and safety risks to workers, iii) classifying risks, iv) documenting control measures intended to eliminate or reduce the risk that could potentially arise during the conduct of work activities, and v) consultation processes with those involved with Electronics work.

National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria

National Element Code & Title:

UEENEEE034B Document occupational hazards and risks in electronics


1. Identify and document hazards and risks.
2. Determine risk class and document control measures.
3. Monitor and review the control measures.

Performance Criteria:

1.1 Hazards are identified using appropriate processes with involvement of others, where appropriate.
1.2 Risks associated with identified hazards are determined in consultation with others, where appropriate, and documented in accordance with regulations and following established procedures.
1.3 Provision is made to accommodate changes to documentation should unforseen hazards be identified.
2.1 Risk class is determined for the risks involved in accordance with the regulations and following established procedures.
2.2 Control measures are developed on the basis of the determined risk(s) and risk class to eliminate and/or mitigate the risk to health and safety in accordance with regulations and following established procedures.
2.3 Risk class and control measures are agreed to and documented in consultation with all involved, where appropriate, in accordance with regulations and established procedures.
3.1 Documented control measures are made available for reference by all involved with the work.
3.2 Control measures are modified where required in consultation with all involved with the work in accordance with established procedures.
3.3 Documentation associated with the risk assessment process are filed in accordance with established procedures
