1.2 OHS policies and procedures are communicated and confirmed to ensure they are understood as they apply to the carrying out of the work.
1.3 Tools, equipment and personnel protective equipment necessary for the work are identified, scheduled and checked to ensure they work correctly as intended and are safe to use in accordance with established procedures.
1.4 Appropriate personnel are consulted to ensure effects of energy on machinery or materials are identified and coordinated effectively with others
involved.
1.5 Resources and materials needed to do the work are confirmed, scheduled and obtained in accordance with established procedures.
1.6 Schedule for identifying effects of energy on machinery or materials including practices for working safely are confirmed in accordance with instructions and requirements.

2.1 OHS policies and procedures and safe workpractices are followed to eliminate or minimize incidents.
2.2 Schedule for identifying effects of energy on machinery or materials work is followed to ensure work is completed in an agreed time, to a quality
standard and with a minimum of waste.
2.3 Further instructions are sought from appropriate personnel in the event of unplanned happenings or conditions.
2.4 Ongoing checks of work quality are undertaken in accordance with instructions and requirements.


3.1 Final checks are made to ensure the effects of energy on machinery or materials as identified conforms with instructions and to requirements.
3.2 Appropriate personnel are notified of completion of the computations. Check results of the effects of energy on machinery and materials.
3.3 Tools, equipment and any surplus resources and materials are, where appropriate, cleaned, checked and returned to storage in accordance with established procedures.
3.4 Work area is cleaned up and made safe and sustainable energy practices are followed.
3.5 Appropriate records are updated in accordance with instructions and established procedures.



Learning Outcomes



Details of Learning Activities

Learning Activities
Classroom learning activities involve the following topics from the Applied Physics:

Electromagnetism
Motion
Light and matter
Atoms and nuclei
Heating
Simulated work activities to consolidate the theory and concepts in relation to identifying effects of energy on machinery and materials in electrotechnology environment.

It is expected that students would require approximately 20% of course hours to be allocated for independent study to do project research on effects of energy on machinery and materials in an electrotechnology environment.
