This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to control vehicle and pedestrian traffic using stop-slow bats, hand signals and approved communication devices in the resources and infrastructure industries.
It applies to those working in operational roles. They generally work in teams in live traffic environments under some degree of supervision.
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 National Model WHS Legislation has not been implemented Positive Training Academy will contextualise the unit of competency by referring to the existing state/territory OHS legislative requirements.
