RIIWHS205E Control traffic with stop-slow bat


Course Description

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.

Mode of Assessment

Observation/Practical Skills – A range of observation techniques have been included in the assessment tools to help identify the students’ ability to demonstrate their competence against the performance criteria and assessment conditions. The assessor utilises the Observation Checklist to identify observable skills either during a practical assessment or the student demonstrates the skills on the job.

Oral Questioning – The student will be assessed using Oral Questioning based on their understanding of the competency being assessed. This can be undertaken during an observation/demonstration or through an interview method, where students discuss their competence with the Assessor.

Written – A written assessment tool is provided to the student to gather evidence using a range of methods, these could include short answer questions, long answer questions, scenario based questions, or multiple choice.

Case Studies – This method is used to provide the learner with the opportunity to apply their required knowledge within a given context, providing the student with a task whereby they can apply their skills to a real life example. Simulated – This method allows the student to demonstrate their skill and attitude in their current work environment or a mirrored simulated environment. The evidence gathered from this approach is to assist the assessor by observing their conceptual, interpersonal and technical ability.
